    Nebraska Prediction Thread

    What does everyone honestly think? I think we have a great shot at them especially if he can contain their offense...

    As for a prediction and since I've been so close on previous predictions , I'm going to predict a close victory 34-31.

    Biggest game of the year IMO. This one sets the tone for the rest of the season!

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    the defense finally makes plays and stops. Which turns the game for us.

    31-29 ISU wins, again!

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    I hope your all correct so far in your predictions. How ever pass defense is last in nation, opposing Q-Backs are picking us apart in our secondary and so will Zac Taylor. Rush Defense is also not very good.
    It will be a shoot out! Who ever scores last wins. Bret will go to the 2 minute drill early and often, after all the best drive of the year was last saturday when they did it. Go deep young man go deep!!!! then hit them with the Q-back draw.

    ISU 45- NU 38

    Take the over and under!!!!! The spread is a nuts

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    Call me a jerk, but I think we lose this game. I think it's pivotal for the rest of the year, but I haven't seen anything that would convince me that we are going to win this game.

    Prove me wrong clones.

    Oh, 38-24 Nebraska.

    Fan Boy sez 27-24, Shaggy hits a 33 yarder with 22 seconds left.

    Jerk sez 38-27 NU, the Clones read all of Garn's internet fodder and realized they should just stay home...

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    I look for the Cyclones to try a more aggressive defensive scheme than we're used to seeing in order to pressure Taylor, and McCarney's going to throw the ball a lot on offense. However, Nebraska's still going to move the ball all night, so this game comes down to offensive execution on our part (read: keeping the defense off the field). We will need to get some takeaways on defense to kill some of their drives and capitalize on every opportunity in the red zone.

    If we end the game with a positive turnover margin, play 4 quarters of aggressive football, and don't have any goal-line meltdowns, we win 34-24.

    edit: If we play the way we've played thus far in the season, we lose 38-21.

    34-30 Good guys.

    Last week was a fluke (I sure hope so). We will jump out great early with the help of a rowdy crowd, 24-10 at halftime. We will lose momentum in the 2nd half, but we'll have just enough to squeek out another close win.

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    Without winning the turnover battle we have a rather small chance to win.

    I'll stick to my August prediction...31-21 Huskers.

    Prove me wrong Dan!

    Re: Nebraska Prediction Thread

    Wow, there are a lot of pessimistic Cyclone fans on this board. It's not like Nebraska is a world-beater this year. They got pressed to OT by KU - AT HOME PEOPLE! Are you guys really thinking that we can't get it done at home? Oh well, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I just think some of you are giving Nebraska WAY too much credit, and not giving your hometown Cyclones enough.
