The Troy Trojans are looking to keep their winning streak alive as they are heavy underdogs heading into Nebraska.
As for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, they are looking for their first win as they were unable to win their season opener against the Colorado Buffaloes.
The Troy Trojans were able to get back on their feet as they got their first season win against the Florida A&M Rattlers. The Trojans opened up the season at at home against the Boise State Broncos, but were unable to complete the upset. With giving up 35 points before the half to the Broncos it was a lost game for the Trojans.
However after that loss, the Trojans were able to bounce back as they took care of the Rattlers in their second round game. The Trojans unleashed six running backs on the game as they totaled over 283 rushing yards.
Now speaking of the running game, the Trojans have had some problems stopping others running against them. They are allowing over 140 rushing yards per game and now go up against the Cornhuskers deadly running game.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers let the win slip away in their season opener and are now tracing back to hopefully getting a first win. The Cornhuskers as stated above, have one of the best running games in CFB. In the first game of the season, the Cornhuskers totaled 324 rushing yards and will unleash that against the Trojans.
Another strong positive that the Trojans will not be able to overcome is the defensive front of the Cornhuskers. Nebraska was able to get a total of seven sacks in the opener as they will be in the backfield
However one of the downfalls about the Cornhuskers in the opening game was the amount of points they gave up. They tend to give away the big plays on the defensive side which may bold well for the Trojans.
