It’s pretty obvious to see why the Huskers will be victorious.

Some of you read that title and thought, this lady is crazy. And I may be, but know this Nebraska is going to win against Oklahoma on Saturday.

#1 NEBRASKA WON THE ORIGINAL GAME OF THE CENTURY

In case you haven’t heard, this week’s match up between the Huskers and the Sooners marks the 50th anniversary of The Game of the Century. Nebraska won that game 35-31. It only makes sense that to mark the occasion Nebraska would be the winner once again.

Speaking of keeping traditions alive:

#2 SCOTT FROST IS UNDEFEATED AGAINST THE SOONERS

Scott Frost has a 2-0 record against Oklahoma. In 1996, while he was playing for Nebraska, the Huskers won 73-21. In 1997, they won 69-7. While this win most likely won’t be so lopsided, Frost is sure to continue this streak. As they say “third times the charm.”

#3 NEBRASKA IS ON A WIN STREAK

The Husker are currently on a two game winning streak. They say good things come in threes, so obviously they are due for another win.

#4 IT’S NEBRASKA’S TURN

Looking at the long history of the Nebraska and Oklahoma rivalry, I discovered that one team wins for awhile, then the other team wins, then they switch back and forth, and then a team goes on a streak again.

After I expertly examined all the data, I have determined that we are currently in that rotation where the teams switch wins back and forth. Oklahoma won the last meeting in 2010, so it is obviously it’s Nebraska’s turn to win now.

#5 NEBRASKA HAS NOTHING TO LOSE

Oklahoma is ranked 3rd and is a 22.5 point favorite. Losing to Nebraska would be pretty bad for them. Nebraska has nothing to lose, so they are going to give it their all. I expect to see some big plays and see a team that is all in. If they lose, it’s not a big deal. That’s what most people expected anyway, but if they win, then they finally get to show the type of team that they can be.

Nebraska is ready to take down Oklahoma.
