NebraskaThe Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Oklahoma Sooners will be meeting Saturday night down in Norman, Oklahoma and we should be in for a pretty good game. The two teams last played each other in the 2006 Big 12 Championship which had the Sooners coming out on top. It will be the first regular season game between the two teams since 2005.

It will be an uphill battle for the Huskers as the Sooners come into the game rated #4 in the country with a 7-1 victory. The Sooners only loss of the season came against #1 Texas down at the Cotton Bowl. However, if the Huskers can chew up the clock and move the ball they will be in the game right down to the end.

Joe Ganz and the offensive linemen are going to have to make very quick decisions as the front four of the Sooner defense is one of the best in the country. They are very quick off the ball and don’t miss very many tackles. Ganz is going to have to check down when needed and make good throws. That includes getting rid of the ball and throwing it out of bounds rather then taking a sack and loosing 7-10 yards.

The Husker defense will have their hands full as well as Sooner quarterback Sam Bradford has been on fire all season. Bradford and the Sooners are third in the country in total yards per game with 549 yards. Bradford has already thrown for 29 touchdowns and 2775 yards while only being picked off five times.

If the front four can’t get pressure on Bradford, look for him to put up huge numbers against the Nebraska defense. I just don’t think they defensive backs can keep up with the Sooner wide receivers. Factor in the game being played in Norman, and things don’t really look good for the Huskers.

I’ll come out predict that the final score will be: Nebraska 21 Oklahoma 45
