Really a quiet week still, and it's Thurs. Could be the respect from NU fans to a Snyder coached team. KSU fans have been mostly quiet as well. Either they accept that they don't have a good chance against us, or they are just biding their time. Maybe we need to declare this a Hate Week, find a purple blogger that hate, hate, hates NU and it's fans, and tell KSU they are not our rival... What do you guys think?

Nebraska 28, Kansas State 17: The North Division title is up for grabs in this winner-take-all battle. The Cornhuskers’ running game will be tested by Kansas State’s gritty defensive front which has overachieved all season. Roy Helu Jr. has been Nebraska’s key offensive threat in recent weeks, but Zac Lee needs to continue to build on his strong effort of last week against Kansas to balance the Cornhuskers’ attack. Kansas State figures to struggle against the Cornhuskers’ defensive front and will need to stay ahead of the chains to keep Grant Gregory from too many long-yardage situations. Bill Snyder will try to dictate the pace by shortening the number of possessions and keeping the game away from the Cornhuskers as much as possible. But Nebraska has too much defense to let the division title slip away.

Can Roy Helu Jr. continue his recent running binge? Helu has bounced back from an earlier shoulder injury to become the Cornhuskers' most consistent offensive threat, averaging 147 rushing yards per game in his last two games. His strong effort last week seemed to perk up the Cornhuskers’ entire offense in a 31-17 triumph over Kansas. Another big game will be important as the Cornhuskers attempt to claim their first championship game berth since 2006.
Coach John Cook described his team’s overall effort as rough around the edges, but thanks to 32 digs from Banwarth, the No. 9 Huskers rolled to a 25-16, 25-21, 25-20 sweep of No. 24 Baylor at the sold-out NU Coliseum.
