Not much to be said here. If we win we play for the Big 10 Championship. If we lose we have to pull out our Ohio State gear and hope for a Michigan loss. I know I speak for everyone when I say I don't want this Husker team backing into the Championship Game and that I have all the faith in the world that they will take care of business on Friday.
Offense: Rex will finally make his return to the field splitting carries with Ameer and piling up a ton of yardage. Bell, Turner, Enunwa, and the rest of the receiving corp go without a drop and lay some nasty blocks on a worn out Hawkeye Defense. Martinez has another solid day and has some voter thinking about making him their choice for Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year.
Defense: Eric Martin makes his case for All Big 10 Honors hurrying Vandenburg all day and ruining any chance for him getting into a rhythm. Stafford and Evans also give voters something to talk about by locking down receivers and totaling 10+ tackles for the game.
Real Cornhuskers: 31
Sisters of the poor: 10
Fearless Prediction: No prediction other than we take care of business in a must win game!!!
Remember when I remember Thanksgiving in Nebraska meant getting up early going hunting for Pheasants..a great meal with family and friends and the Huskers vs the Sooners.
I'm glad I'm old enough to remember how great the Husker playing the Sooners was one of the best college football rivals.
So now we have Huskers vs the Hawkeyes.
So be it.
Go Big Red.
Huskers struggle in the first quarter....then start the machine
The Husker fans in attendance give Rex Burkhead a standing ovation.
Big Red takes care of business to get to Indy.
Corn is on a roll. They are too motivated to let down. They will come outta that pink locker room fired up. Great day to be a Husker!
Bugeaters - 34
Praire Birds - 6
Almost waited too long!
Huskers - 14
Tough writing this due to intense laughter but have to go with what's working. GBR!
We have not been playing well and always have to come from behind. This could be the stumbling stone all of us would hate to see. But we have been a come from behind and win team. My prediction Bg Red Cornhuskers 32 , leftover yellow turkeys 28. We need to be intense.
Accuscore.com says Iowa +14.5 points
Just saw something on OWH, that Huskers are riding a nine game losing streak on games played on November 23rd ... most of them by horrid margins to OU and a couple bad ones with Colorado.
However, the last win was in 1963 (my birth year) when Bob Devaney won his first Big 8 Championship. I will go with the karma for an inaugural championship in the Big 10 ...
13-7 with 7 to go in the 4th. I sure hope the Huskers hang on!
Victory formation in the last minute. A win by 6 was all that was necessary to play in the B1G championship game.
Tough win in tough conditions. Nice to see 22 back and running strong. See you all in Indy!!!!!!!
even though he picked the wrong team (on purpose) I hereby declare Husker Mose the winner of this weeks predciction thread
it wasn't a pretty win but nobody ever says "I wish we could of had a better victory"
on to Indy baby :)
Thanks boom! Thought I was completely silly putting that score down (which I kind of was). If the wind would have cooperated a little more the score probably would have been far less close. GBR!
