    Big 12 Battle Nebraska vs. Oklahoma

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    The BCS has them ranked #3 and #5. Nope Oklahoma's not 3 the Cornhuskers are #3. What a turn around this season has been for the Big Red. Lincoln is crazy as ever. Somewhere Tom Osborne, Tommy Frazier and Eric Crouch are grinnin ear to ear ( I know you like the corn reference, ear to ear, I should get paid for this). This isn't your daddy's cornhuskers, they feature a more balanced attack these days. Zack Lee has been efficent (14td's 5 int's) While Helu and Castille have combined for over 1500 yards and 15 TD's. While they may not be Trev Albert's Blackshirts, the defense is solid and play as an 11. The Husker's are undefeated and looking to lock their spot in the Big 12 championship game.

    Oklahoma seems to do it every year. Coach Stoops primes his teams to be in this position. However, they seem to find a way to make it hard on themselves. They can't seem to answer the call every time out. A slip up here a slip up there adn they have to claw back. Well here's there opportunity to jump well into the BCS mix. Demarco Murray has been dazling. Bradford has been pedestrian but has picked up lately.Gresham is by far the best TE in the country. Their defense will be the key. Will they show up in Lincoln?

    These two teams locked horns in the Game of the Century in 1971, will we be blessed with an instant classic?

    Nice write-up, SDID! I just hope we can keep it close against the Sooners.

    JCA, I sent you a msg on PSN. Please let me know what time you can play today/tomorrow.

    Work, coach, then home around 6:45-7:00ish pst. This should be a great game, I'm hoping my offense doesn't get off to a slow start again. Should be fun. Text is definitely the easiest way to reach me.

    That's fine, let's play tomorrow. I have some stuff to do early tomorrow morning so I won't be able to stay up very late tonight. I'm pretty much free after noon (hopefully playing madden...lol!) but it's easier if we can fix a time to avoid any confusion. Let me know what time works for you

    Cornhuskers go down 31-28! Coach JCA couldn't be on the sidelines today, so he sent his CPU counterpart who must have injected his QB and WR's with some magic potion because they kept breaking tackles and making consecutive completions as comeback AI reared its ugly head once again. Coach Pelini consoled his team and praised them for their effort. The Big 12 North is still there for the taking if Pelini can keep his boys focused and get to the Big 12 championship game.
