The June animosity between two Big 12 schools – one of which will leave for the Big Ten – will take center stage as struggling Texas meets surging Nebraska in Lincoln.

Why To Bet On Texas

The Texas Longhorns are coming off a bye week, a break they desperately needed. Coach Mack Brown has a full-fledged crisis on his hands… not in the long run, but certainly with respect to this season. Texas has been banged up a lot on the right side of its offensive line. Moreover, the Longhorns have gotten no production out of their running backs and quarterback Garrett Gilbert has struggled to pick up coordinator Greg Davis’ offensive packages. The bye week could do a lot of good for this team, which has the pick of the litter in the state of Texas and should be able to reload instead of rebuild. Perhaps this is the game in which Texas puts all the pieces together and plays with a lot more physicality and speed on both sides of the ball. The Longhorns’ most recent loss came against the leader of the Big 12 South Division, the Oklahoma Sooners Now, Texas gets to play the leader of the Big 12 North Division, Nebraska. The Longhorns will be highly motivated and ready to play harder than they’ve played all season. That won’t solve all their problems, but it will definitely cure a lot of them. If Texas goes full tilt in this tussle, some basic adjustments made by Mack Brown and the rest of his staff should make the Longhorns a better and more competitive team against a Nebraska squad that has its share of limitations. Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez is a brilliant runner, but he can’t throw very well at all. If Texas can force third-and-long situations on defense, it will contain Nebraska and keep the game very close until the final gun.

Why To Bet On Nebraska

This past June, administrators at the University of Nebraska were very adamant in expressing their displeasure with the University of Texas and the way the Longhorn program lorded itself over the rest of the Big 12 Conference. Nebraska, not hiding its anger, moved to the Big Ten in a process that will be finalized next fall. The Huskers are saying “good riddance” to Texas, which means that unless Texas somehow overcomes Oklahoma for the Big 12 South championship, this will be the last regularly-scheduled meeting between the two teams as Big 12 opponents. Nebraska, as the team that’s trying to leave Texas’ shadow, will gain an incredible amount of emotional fuel from this dynamic, and should find it very easy to sustain a high level of energy in this contest. Texas might be very motivated to win this contest, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers will be even more inspired, and by a large margin at that. This stuff matters in college football, as does the fact that Nebraska will play this game at home at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln. The natives will want blood, and their team will be ready to satisfy the Big Red fan base.

How The Game Will Play Out

This game will be treated as a rivalry game, even though Texas and Nebraska have not been traditional rivals over the years. Texas will play better defense, but the Huskers should swamp the Longhorns’ sputtering offense. Nebraska could very easily score just 17 points and still cover the spread. A 17-7 or 20-10 win is actually very possible, and if Nebraska adds a defensive touchdown to the mix, this game could spiral out of control for Texas. Take Nebraska, who wants this game more than Texas needs it… and Texas needs this game a lot.
