Last week like most every other team in the country Nebraska looked as rusty as any team who played a game since December is bound to look yet that hasn't stopped Nebraska from running into a crowded theater yelling fire where of course there is none. Some "fans" have now convinced themselves that Nebraska, a 28 point favorite, will lose this game. Nevermind Fresno State lost to California last week 36-21 in a game that wasn't that wasn't that close. Oh by the way Cal is worse than Nebraska.
I have to admit before last week I would have said bet your mortgage on Fresno State with a 28 point spread. Now I would say do not touch this game. Fresno State won't score much but will Nebraska be able to score enough to cover that large a spread? Fresno State has played many tough teams in many tough stadiums. I doubt they pee down their legs at the site of the red N on the white helmet. Still if Nebraska can correct some of the sloppy play they showed last week they should win this one pretty comfortably.
One last thing in Fresno State's favor. I am going to the game. Got tickets from a friend for a Birthday present. Last time I went to a game in Lincoln 2009. Iowa State 9 Nebraska 7. Let's hope this is a much happier outing to the mother church.
