The Nebraska Cornhuskers visit the Oregon Ducks in a big week two matchup for both teams. The Cornhuskers won their home opener against the Arkansas State Redwolves, 43-36.
The Ducks did the same, winning 77-21 at home against the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.
Nebraska survived a close season opener against Arkansas State. If Nebraska wants this game to stay close, the Cornhuskers need to make some defensive adjustment. Oregon destroyed Arkansas State in week one. The Ducks will look to put up points early in week two.
Nebraska got the hard earned win last week, but some fans feel bittersweet.
Not every team is going to be a smaller school like Arkansas State, so for the Cornhuskers to stuggle at home with a full roster could leave some scratching their heads.
Nebraska played no defense in week one. The Cornhuskers defense gave up 26 points in the first half and allowed 497 total yards of offense against Arkansas State.
Defending the run wasn’t the problem for Nebraska allowing just 82 runs yards for the game.
The Nebraska secondary allowed Arkansas State’s Justice Hansen to pass for 415 yards, 3 touchdowns and two interceptions. If not for the turnovers, Nebraska would be looking at a 0-1 record coming into this game.
The Ducks came out in week one with a chip on their shoulders. After a disappointing 2016 season, Oregon made a statement against over matched Southern Utah.
The Ducks offense exploded for 703 yards of offense in the opener.
Even though Southern Utah is a FCS team, the Ducks looked like the Ducks of old. New head coach Willie Taggart was happy to get his first win in blowout fashion.
Oregon had it going on both sides of the ball, especially running the ball.
The Duck rushing attack had ripped the Thunderbirds for 348 yards on the ground. Quarterback Justin Herbert passed for 281 yards and one touchdown.
The Oregon defense allowed 365 total yards against Southern Utah. Not a good sign for the Ducks defensively.
