The Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Michigan Wolverines did not figure to be in the running for a BCS bowl a few weeks ago, but now, they have an outside chance to gain gridiron glory.

Why Nebraska Will Win

The college football betting  experts who are looking at this game are wondering how Nebraska and Michigan are alive in the running for a BCS bowl. The Huskers and Wolverines have both had up-and-down seasons and have been exposed by less-than-imposing foes: Northwestern for Nebraska and Iowa for Michigan. However, Nebraska really manned up last weekend and gutted out a tough 17-14 win at Penn State. Nebraska’s players faced a unique emotional challenge due to all the distractions surrounding the contest. The week of controversy and tumult connected to the firing of head coach Joe Paterno made it difficult for Nebraska to focus on football, but the Huskers did exactly that. One week after showing such composure on the road, traveling to Michigan for a much more “normal” road game shouldn’t be as daunting as it might have seemed a few weeks ago. Nebraska will be calm and centered for this game; such an emotional disposition puts the Huskers in great position to win.

Why Michigan Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you are obviously aware of the fact that Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson has his limtiations, but you’re also aware that Nebraska is little more than an average team. Nebraska got dominated at the line of scrimmage on Nov. 5 by Northwestern. Nebraska is just not consistent or imposing on either side of the ball; a home loss to a Northwestern squad that had won only one Big Ten game through the first two months of the season shows that the Huskers are incredibly flawed. The thing to realize about Northwestern is that while the Wildcats don’t have much of a passing game, they were able to spread out the Huskers’ defense and use a zone-read-based running attack to exploit Nebraska’s lack of speed. Robinson is a fleet-footed quarterback who is very familiar with the zone-read running game. Michigan has the athletes to outflank Nebraska in this contest. The Wolverines have their problems, particularly in the passing game, but Nebraska’s deficiencies could still allow the Maize and Blue to win this game. The fact that Michigan is playing at home should matter a great deal. You want to have late-November showdowns on your own turf; advantage, Wolverines.

Who Will Win

It’s really a matter of location, location, location. These are two very flawed teams with mediocre offenses and inconsistent quarterbacks. Their defenses display great effort but are far from supremely talented. The quarterback who can make fewer mistakes in this game is the quarterback who will walk off the field victorious. Martinez and Robinson are both mistake-prone signal callers, but at home, Robinson – who should be able to run the ball more than he normally does – is in position to throw fewer passes and therefore commit fewer turnovers. Give the edge to Michigan in a close one.
