Regardless, it looks pretty obvious that our defense is sleepwalking through the season so far. They're not playing with any kind of urgency, and they're getting beat at the point of attack by just about everyone. I see no reason to believe that will get fixed over the next few days, so I expect Wyoming to move the ball on us.
Maybe the Huskers just have a (misplaced) sense of superiority. It's hard to say. We should have demolished Fresno and Washington, and while we were up 44-17 on the Huskies, we very clearly let up and let them score three times in the 4th - unforgivable! I don't see a ridiculous blowout. I see a Nebraska win, but most likely by less than the spread. I'm guessing the Huskers win by about 17.
Actually, it's our game against CSU at the end of the year. 100 year rivalry with a traveling trophy. After that, Air Force which is about a 50-60 year rivalry, and then our biggest game is probably BSU (top 4 team, though we don't expect to win). Then maybe Nebraska. It is a big game, we'll probably lose, your kicker and punter will have a field day, but the game will still be played at pver 7000 feet above sea level with probably the loudest 30,000 seat stadium there is. Just ask Texas after a blocked punt and ran it in for a TD.
