Hey guys, a fan here from your favorite northwest school. Congrats on the win Saturday. While the refs certainly didn't help us, you guys made the plays when you needed to and we didn't. You guys deserved it and you fans are certainly classier than any at the other schools out west.
Anyways, I like to bet on select games where I feel the point spread is either too high or too low. I've been pretty good at it and I actually won the Pac-10 pick contest on the Dawg Pound last year. The Huskers have a big road trip coming up that has piqued my interest. No, I'm not talking about Madison...I'm talking about Laramie.
Obviously the Huskers have a huge edge in talent and I would be shocked if the Cowboys pulled the upset. But the point spread of 23.5 seems way too high.
Nebraska is coming off a big win (yes, I think UW counts as a big win) and is looking ahead to a huge showdown with Wisconsin next week. The winner of that game would seem to have legit national championship aspirations. Do you think they're really focused on a trip to Wyoming? While the Cowboys aren't great by any means, they are undefeated. (Granted, they have played 2 FCS schools). I'm sure this is the game they have circled on their schedule and the stadium will be rocking.
I have a hard time seeing the Huskers avoid some type of a letdown in this game. They're 1-4 in the last five games against the spread. Even if you guys win by a comfortable 3 touchdowns, Wyoming still covers. Interested to see what you guys think.
