The end is in sight and the Huskers are in the drivers seat heading towards the Big 10 Championship Game. This weekends game against Minnesota is one the Huskers can't and won't be looking past. For many greats it will be their last time running out of the tunnel and playing in front of the sea of red. With this kind of emotion there is no chance that Nebraska slips up.
Offense: I have wrote about it before and I am happy that Burkhead has taken the time off to let himself heal. As much as I think he should probably give it another week I would almost feel cheated if he didn't get at least a few carries in his last home game. Hopefully Martinez will target Marlowe, Osborne, Reed and Cotton and give them one last memory at home.
Defense: So many seniors on the D that it would be awesome to see them get a shutout. It's probably not likely, but what a gift it would be for leaders like Compton, Martin, Whaley, Steinkuhler, Meredith, Fisher, and Stafford.
Senior Led Huskers: 38
Fearless Prediction: Seniors Burkhead, Reed, and Marlowe all find the Endzone giving the home town crowd something to get crazy about. Compton and Martin get free and deliver a punishing hit on a wide eyed Freshman Quarterback. After finishing undefeated at home the seniors carry Bo off the field in style!!!!
As ridiculous as it is I have to keep picking the other team. Don't want to be responsible for ruining our good luck! GBR!
Gophers - 21
Huskers - 20
Keep it up Mose ... my wife doesn't like my superstitons either. She asked me why I changed Husker garb at halftime during the PSU game; apparently it worked. Hopefully, no wardrobe change this weekend.
Big golden mice in the Cornfield this week. They won't know what hit 'em when the Big Red Machine comes rollin' down the field. Huskers harvest another win.
Team Kill: 6
Team Bo: 37

That's funny! I've been told I'm insane for doing the very same thing. It's kind of like those ESPN "it's not crazy it's sports" commercials.
Don't mess with what works Mose!!! I am also overly superstitous. I only wear superman shirts on game day instead of Husker gear. You gotta stick with what works.
Huskers win it.
Huskers will run for a quarter mile on a windy day in Lincoln against a pretty good Gopher D
