Nebraska vs Kansas previewThe Nebraska football team will be looking to get back on track as they face off against the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday afternoon. The Huskers are coming off a blow out loss to Oklahoma where they were knocked out in the first three minutes and really never had a shot at getting back into the game. With three games left in the regular season, they are calling this a three game season and it starts with Kansas.

Last year the Jayhawks got the best of the Huskers as they won in Lawrence by the score of 76-39. I don’t expect that type of score this year in Lincoln but the Huskers will have their hands full that is for sure. It all starts with the Huskers trying to slow down Todd Reesing who has thrown for 20 touchdowns and 2,368 yards. If the defense can get pressure on Reesing and keep him contained they will be sitting pretty I think. However if they let Reesing sit back in the pocket and pick apart the defensive backs it could be a very long day just like it was last year in Lawrence.

I look for both teams to try to establish a power running game early in the game. With the weather in the 40′s and some strong winds the team that runs the ball better will win this game in my opinion. I don’t think you will see the teams throwing as much as they usually do and when they do it will be more short pass patterns then the bombs. It will be critical for the Huskers offensive line to block well and create holes for Marlon Lucky, Roy Helu Jr and Quentin Castille.

I expect Lucky to get the start as he has been but Helu should get some touches early in the game. He needs to touch the ball atleast 12-15 times and the same for Lucky. I’m not sure if we will see much of Castille has he is putting the football on the ground too much as of late.

This game might just come down to turnovers. I think it will come right down to the end and the team that holds onto the ball will come away with the victory. Call me a homer but here is my prediction: Nebraska 35 Kansas 31
