A crucial non conference game pins the #24 Nebraska Cornhuskers against the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday afternoon.
Both teams have the potential to do some damage in the rankings as they come in off Week 1 wins.
#24 Nebraska has the most hype this team has received in quite some time.
The Cornhuskers started off with a victory in Week 1, but there is still a lot of work to be done after what was a below average performance. Nebraska struggled all afternoon long against South Alabama in what was eventually just a 35-21 win.
As 35 point favorites, they never had the chance to pull away. The offense for the Cornhuskers was very inconsistent as the defense continued to let up some big plays.
Nebraska finished with just 276 yards in total offense as they had no rhythm at all. RB Dedrick Mills did manage to find the end zone twice, but his 44 yards on the ground led what was just 98 rushing yards total for the team.
They have to find consistency early on here as Colorado showcased they had no issues scoring themselves in Week 1.
The Cornhuskers are 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 road games.
Colorado continued their rivalry with Colorado State in Week 1.
The game was back and forth throughout for 3 quarters as the Rams and Buffaloes continued to exchange scores. Eventually, the Buffaloes got some key stops that led to touchdowns as they rolled to a 52-31 win. The final score doesn’t indicate how close this one actually was, but the Buffaloes really did prove they have some playmakers that can change the game.
In total, Colorado put up 475 yards as an offense. They ran one of the most balanced attacks in Week 1 as they threw for 232 and ran for 243. That is the key to their success as they love to keep the defense guessing and can line up in many different packages.
Defensively, Colorado will have it’s work cut out for them. They struggled for about 3 quarters with the Rams offense, allowing some big plays down field.
There are a lot of gaps in this Buffaloes secondary and they’ll need to be wary of the long ball against this Nebraska offense.
The Buffaloes are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win of more than 20 points.
