Here we go! Here we go!

Nebraska vs the Oregon Ducks!

If I had to pick a single key to this game, it will be Nebraska’s ability to control the clock. Nebraska will need to run the ball successfully OR consistently complete screens and short passes throughout this game. They’ll need to make sure they’re snapping the ball with little time on the clock.

The goal here is to limit Oregon’s offensive possessions. The Ducks have speed, and plenty of it. What you don’t want them to do is to use that speed to wear your defense down and obliterate you in the second half. That’s how they play football. It’s doubtful it’s changed just because Willie Taggart is a new coach.

Expect Nebraska’s defense to do much better than they did against Arkansas State, but don’t expect them to go this full game without some serious break downs. Oregon will get some big plays.

We should find out a lot more about this Nebraska team today.

Are you excited, or afraid!!!??????
