Predictions:

Texas (-14) vs. Nebraska
Mike: Same song second verse. I'd like nothing more than to see Ndamukong Suh crash and burn the BCS and spring TCU into the national title game, but I don't think Nebraska's offense is going to be up to the task... Bovines 24, Huskers 14

JLew: I don't like Texas' determination to make it to the Championship game. I don't like being such big dogs. I do like having no pressure. I'll pull the homer card.
Nebraska 16 Texas 13


Jon J: This game is why I would never bet on college football . You have to be able to bet without emotion, and I wouldn’t be able to do it consistently. I’m looking for the perfect game from the Huskers, and that perfect game would be an ugly slugfest.

I gave Peter Bean a whole bunch of crap on EDSBS Live this past Tuesday about how the Huskers would win this game, 13-11, and I’m sticking with it.
