We come at last to the first true guarantee game of the year.  There's no line on this game, and AccuScore puts the odds of the Huskers winning at 99.5% -- the kind of odds #1 seeds get in the NCAA Tournament.  UAPB is bad -- really bad.  They've been blown out three times this year -- by Colorado, Texas A&M, and Creighton, and are ranked 305th out of 341 teams by Ken Pomeroy's computer (which is, admittedly, inaccurate this early in the season).  Nebraska should win this game easily.

That cushion should give Doc the opportunity to work some kinks out of the offense this afternoon, and hopefully start to find a way to break those second-half cold-streaks before the Creighton and Arizona State games over the next two weekends.  Expect to see a lot of playing time spread across the top 11 players, and most of them to score -- the two themes we can expect to see continue as the season presses on.
