Can the Blackshirts Overcome McCoy's High power offense?


I think so. the game is pretty evenly matched in those terms. Nebraska has a championship offense & Texas has a championship offense. These two teams on these sides of the ball will offset each other & to prove that, here's some stats:

The Longhorn offense is third in the country in scoring offense (43.0 points) and 11th in total offense (451.6 yards). The Nebraska defense is third in the country in scoring defense (11.1 points) and 11th in total defense (291.4 yards).

Yeach I know about Shipley & McCoy's running ability, but our 2 DTs are the answer, as we all know they make tackles that the LBs or DBs should be making. In addition to them, we also have O'Hanlon & Assante, so we're pretty well covered.

So what i think it comes down to is Nebraska's running game & Henry. It's something that Nebraska has that Texas doesn't. And if the O-Line succeeds in allowing Burkhead & Helu to punish Texas, Nebraska will win.

Here's why. As we are aware, the passing game isn't not that great. So we rely on our runnig game and as we aware, what one way to stop an offense like Texas, keep them off the field. If they're running game is successful, then they can burn the clock, while putting points on the board, & not diminishing Texas' opportunities to score. Plus, a good running sets up the play action & we have two of the best TEs in the nation. So the running game helps get the passing game going.  And I think, like most analysts do, Nebraska will be squeezing out an extremely close win, so we look to Henry to make some clutch field goals.

But who knows, maybe it's a blowout for either team grabbing the victory, but this is how & why I think they'll win.
