Nebraska and the Red Wolves have met twice before in 2009 and 2012 and the Cornhuskers have won by a combined 48 points. They will meet again in Lincoln and the Redwolves are looking to kick off the season on the right foot.
The Redwolves ended their season last year winning 8 of 9 of their last games and are in good position to keep the momentum going as they look to win the sun belt this year.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
Arkansas State has been very successful in the last couple of years but has had a tough time being able to keep coaches to stick around so they have been very inconsistent.
Running multiple offenses and having trouble finding the groove that they need to succeed the Red Wolves will need to buckle down on defense to keep this game interesting.
Look for the Red Wolves to keep this one close for the first half but really taper off in the second half as their talent level will not be able to keep up with that of the Cornhuskers.
To keep this game close the turnover battle will be one of the most important things for the Red Wolves. This may be a cliche but will be ever so important to keep this game within reach.
The Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee will lead the charge as the young quarterback is trying to turn all of the recruiting and the summer workout hype into reality.
He will be faced with a weak defense from the Red wolves but a more underrated one than you could think of.
Watch for the Cornhuskers to really expand the playbook and narrow down some of their identity coming into a brutal Big 10 schedule.
The Cornhuskers have always been known to run the ball so expect this to take a lot of pressure off of Lee and so he can settle in nicely as the season progresses.

The Cornhuskers should run the table at home and should expect a little scare early but really settle down overall and take care of business.
Tanner Lee is really the only big storyline as he looks to begin his career.

I would be very confident in betting the cover for Nebraska as they will put a lot of points on the board and hold strong on the defense front as well.
Overall the talent level for Nebraska is really way more than the Red Wolves can handle so you should see the scoreboard light up this weekend. The line should move so move as quickly as possible taking the points in this one.
