Why To Bet On Nebraska

The Huskers, for one thing, are going to be extremely mad after their immensely frustrating 20-13 loss to Texas on Oct. 16. Nebraska had that Texas game circled in red letters for the whole offseason. The Huskers had been pointing to that game and wanted to win it very badly, since the school had a very public feud with Texas on its way out of the Big 12 and onto the Big Ten Conference. Nebraska administrators pulled no punches in expressing their distaste for Texas’ actions and motives in college football’s clamorous offseason of realignment. The knowledge of that loss to the Longhorns, combined with the realization that they now have little margin for error in the Big 12 North Division, means that Nebraska has to win this game to feel good about its chances for a division title, which is the only way this team can now make a BCS Championship Bowl. Nebraska is almost certain to miss out on a BCS Bowl game if it doesn’t win the Big 12. There are going to be too many other really good one-loss teams in front of the Huskers.

Therefore, motivation will play a big role in this game for Nebraska. The other thing the Huskers own in this game is better frontline size. Oklahoma State is not as strong or as powerful in the trenches, and while OSU smoked the Texas Tech Red Raiders last weekend, Tech is not the same as Nebraska. Not by a long shot.

Why To Bet On Oklahoma State

The Cowboys’ offense has been steadily productive this season. There have been some occasional hiccups, but Oklahoma State produced a very solid game on the road last weekend at Texas Tech, en route to a 34-17 win. The Cowboys rolled up 581 yards of offense, getting 356 in the air and 225 on the ground. OSU displayed considerable balance and overwhelmed Texas Tech’s defense in the first quarter, rolling to a 21-0 lead before the Red Raiders even blinked. OSU’s earlier Big 12 South win this year, over the Texas A&M Aggies, was much more of a high-wire act; the Cowboys teetered on the edge of defeat in the final minute but used an interception to turn things around and ultimately top A&M by a 38-35 score. That escape mentally liberated this team, which has played with more confidence and conviction since then. If OSU can get off to a good start at home against a Nebraska team whose offense lies in disarray, it will be hard for the Huskers to wage a comeback, and Oklahoma State will have a very good chance to win.

How The Game Will Play Out

Nebraska will thump Oklahoma State at the line of scrimmage and manhandle the less powerful Cowboys. The Huskers are too strong at the point of attack to be outworked in this game. Oklahoma State’s spread offense will get shut down by an angry Nebraska team intent on righting its season.
