NebraskaIt’s going to be an exciting weekend in Lincoln as the Virgina Tech Hokies come to town to take on the our Nebraska Cornhuskers. Game time is set for 7 p.m. CT so that means we will have a full day of tailgating and football activities going on! I can’t wait to get into town on Friday afternoon!

The Hokies are coming into Lincoln with a 3-1 overall record with their only loss coming to East Carolina the first week of the season. The Hokies aren’t the team that they used to be as they are down this year but are still very competitive and come to play every game.

The key for the Huskers on Saturday night in my opinion will be stopping Hokie quarterback Tyrod Taylor.  Taylor is a dual threat qb who would rather run it himself then pass. I expect the Huskers defense to key in on Taylor and shut down his running abilities so he has to pass the ball. If Taylor is forced to pass the ball, the defense will end up with an interception or two I think. Taylor has yet to pass for a td this year and has thrown two picks.

We can’t just forget about the other Hokie quarterback however as Sean Glennon will probably see a little bit of action as well. He has thrown for 197 yards, 1 touchdown, and three picks.

As far as the Huskers offense going up against the Hokies defense, I think the Huskers are going to have a pretty good day. The Hokies give up on average just 17 points but the Huskers are averaging 40 points. I really think the offense gets going and the Huskers score 27-35 points on their way to a 7-10 point victory.

One huge key to the game is if Virginia Tech can score on special teams like they always seem to do. They have been known for blocking punts and extra points in past years and they still play great on special teams. If they want to beat the Huskers, they are going to have to score atleast one special teams touchdown and cause a couple of Huskers tournovers. I just don’t see that happening.

My prediction: Huskers over the Hokies 27-17
