Top 20 Matchup
This game is one of ABC’s regionally televised games on Saturday and it should be a good one. Nebraska is ranked 14th in the country while Oklahoma State is ranked 17th.
Bounce Back for Nebraska – The Cornhuskers were in the national title hunt until last week’s loss to Texas. It will be interesting to see how they respond. Not only were they considered a national title contender, quarterback Taylor Martinez was a Heisman Trophy candidate. That discussion is now over as well. Nebraska has won six straight road games so they could have a bounce back game at Oklahoma State.
Oklahoma State at Home – The Cowboys have won six straight games at home and they are 16-3 at home over the past three seasons. This is a big test for the Cowboys though since they have lost 20 of their last 25 games against Top 25 teams. The Cornhuskers lost at Oklahoma State in 2006 and in 2007. They have not won at Stillwater since 1995.
Cowboys Offense – The Cowboys are averaging 49.5 points and 535.3 yards per game which is second only to Oregon. Brandon Weeden is second in the nation with 327.7 passing yards per game. Justin Blackmon leads the country in receiving at 159.2 yards per game. Running back Kendall Hunter is averaging 138.3 yards per game. The Oklahoma State offense will be matched up against a Nebraska defense that is ninth in the nation in fewest yards allowed per game.
High Scoring Game? This could be a high scoring game with Oklahoma State’s offense and their lack of defense. They are giving up 27.2 points and 404.5 yards per game.
