NU 27 BYU 20.. TA and D show their stuff.
It's bound to be a high scoring game. Hopefully 41-37 A husker win. Hill is back and and has good backing. We are S&C well but this soft practice chit is for west coast idiots not Nebraska. IMHO
Offense - Touch Down Tommy Jr will have a big day throwing the ball with a 100 yrd receiving game by Westerstasche. Louisiana Smooth Cethan Carter will finally get to show his athleticism with multiple short yard catches that will move the chains. Newby will have a nice day running the ball and Cross will put in one TD in the Red Zone.
Defense: Collins will be seeing double teams all day long which will open up opportunities for Big V, Iron Jack Gangwish, and the Caveman Greg McMullen to bring pressure and disrupt the passing game. The secondary will lock down the big BYU receivers with at lest one INT (probably by Davie)
Fearless Prediction: I don't know why, but I have a good feeling about our O line this year. Big and nasty it feels like a throw back to the old days. Football games are won up front and the Huskers have talent on both sides of the ball. The line is going to open some big holes and if Newby can get into a rhythm he could go for 100 or more. Jamal Turner will have a TD catch to start off his senior season and Drew Brown hits from 50. Sam Foltz, the best punter in the Big 10, has a light out day pinning BYU way back all afternoon.
I do think BYU will score quite a bit. It is a crap shoot predicting this one. Will our O line do their job? Will Armstrong have thrown those 1000 balls this summer and developed his short passes. Will our new D over pursue and get burned on counters and reverses. And can we get some pressure on their QB? Will the sun come up in the east and the Huskers continue their winning streak for openers? Well hell yes!!
Make us proud Huskers! GBR
That's what I get for counting my chickens before they are suspended. I am really upset to see that Carter will be on the sideline. Hopefully Foster or Sutton will step up.
I expect a slower pace and lower scores in the MR era
