Default Nebraska vs USC

CFB game of the week.

What are your predictions?

Nebraska has a first year QB in the system, but has had plenty of experience and over a year of practice in the system. Improved 0-line, secondary, linebackers, and depth at every position. Only thing that hasn't improved is D-line, but still have plenty of experience. Also have Mo Purify at receiver who wasn't a key part of the offense when they played last year.

USC has an experienced QB, explosive runningbacks, and athletic receivers. Their defense is supposed to be one of their best in years. Very talented team, but they can be beat by inferior teams(Oregon State, UCLA).

I'm a Nebraska fan, and think it will be close, but I'm not sure Nebraska has enough to pull it off though. I'm guessing USC win's by 3-7, and 2 tds at most.

And the game is in Lincoln this year, and the Huskers Offense definitely plays better at home. I believe this will be a huge factor in the outcome of the game.

SC will come into your town and dominate Nebraska.... better get used to that fact. They held back Week 1, but will turn on the jets week 3. No second/third string players in the 3rd quarter of this game.

Dominate? They won last year by 18 at home. Playing in Lincoln is worth at least 7 for Nebraska. And both of last years starting CBs are 2nd string now, Zachary Bowman is back from an injury, and is considered one of the top CB in the country.

Nebraska didnt look good. That HC is a moron. USC seems the reasonable choice here. Think USC is favored by 10. Speed kills and what does USC have? And oh yeah they got the defense to really get in Nebraskas face mask.

Why is Michigan favored over Notre Dame by 7?

Probably because offenses have beaten Mich...and ND doesn't have one.

Plus it's at Mich.

Plus ND D isn't much better than Mich's.

Wow....this game is pretty crappy.

Oh ya, and Mike Hart said Mich will win.

USC didn't look that great against Idaho, but they had 2 weeks to prepare for this game (*******). As long as their defense isn't clueless this game and Keller isn't still really rusty, then NU has a chance. Though, I'm pissed that I won't get to see the game live.

USC sat starters as early as the second quarter... they used 1 10th of ther playbook because that's all it took to win vs, idaho, and why show what you got when there's no reason...carroll has been coaching this way since "margin of victories" was removed from the BCS computers...

Even playing vanilla, USC should have beaten Idaho by at least 50. And, guess what? Nebraska was quite vanilla against Wake Forest, as well.

I guess they should have been favored by a lot more. ND is pathetic.
