Week one of the College Football season is finally here. In week one the #24 Nebraska Cornhuskers host the South Alabama Jaguars for a matchup they are heavy favorites in.
South Alabama Jaguars
The South Alabama Jaguars are clearly overmatched in this contest. Last season the team went 3-9 in the season and 2-6 in Sun Belt play.
They will have a new quarterback under center as they no longer have Evan Orth (1,795 yards), and Cole Garvin (524 yards).
Cephus Johnson will be asked to lead the Jaguars this season. As a freshman he threw for 120 yards and three touchdowns in minimal action. Leading the way at running back is Tra Minter. The senior rushed for 801 yards and six touchdowns.
The team will certainly miss standout receiver Jamarius Way. Way led all receivers with 855 yards and eight touchdown grabs.
The Jaguars defense is concerning. Last season they allowed at least 28 points in 11 of their 12 contests.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are ranked 24th in the country to kick off the season. Last season Nebraska had a disappointing 4-8 season and they went 3-6 in Big Ten play. Their record didn’t show how tough they really were as four of their losses were by five points or less.
Quarterback Adrian Martinez will be asked to lead the Cornhuskers offense. Martinez wound up with 2,617 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, and eight interceptions last season. Martinez also rushed for an impressive 629 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Cornhuskers rush attack will miss Devin Ozigbo who had 1,082 yards and 12 touchdowns. Maurice Washington (455 yards) is expected to have a good season for Nebraska.
