It’s time for the annual Nebraska vs Missouri football game and after reading articles and listening to interview you sure can tell that both coaching staffs and players are ready to get things going on Thursday night in Columbi, Missouri. This will be a tough challenge for both teams as they both look to open up the Big 12 Conference with a victory and get started towards the Big 12 North title.

Missouri comes into the game undefeated with a 4-0 record so the Huskers will be looking to give the Tigers their first lose of the season and more importatly their first lose in conference play. I really have a feelng that this game is going to come right down to the end just like when the Huskers played Virginia Tech. The team that doesn’t make a costly mistake in the fourth quarter is probably going to come away with the victory in my opinion.

One key to the Huskers coming out of Columbia with a victory is going to be the play of quarterback Zac Lee. The Tigers will attempt to pressure Lee and force him to make mistakes and bad throws just like the Hokies did in Blacksburg. Can Zee keep his composure and will the linemen give him enough time to make good decisions with the ball?

On the other side of the ball for the Huskers they will attempt to slow down the spread offense and ex-husker committ Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert has looked pretty good so far this season as he took over the reigns from Chase Daniel. Daniel has yet to throw an interception this year while tossing eleven touchdowns. Look for the defense to play a lot nickle and dime and hope that the front four can get pressure on Gabbert.

It looks like it will be a rainy and soggy night in Columbia so ball control will be a big issue. The Huskers and Roy Helu will have the advantage on the ground so as long as Roy and the other running backs don’t put the ball on the turf I expect the Huskers to come out with a 35-34 victory and improve to 4-1 on the season.

What do you think the outcome of the game will be?

    Nebraska comes out on top, but only because the defense keeps them in it. Zac Lee has enough of a game to keep it close and O’Hanolan doesn’t make the same mistake twice. They need to stay clean to win no penalties. It is going to be exciting. GBR
