    With being the only user game of the week, how can this top rated matchup not be game of the week? Both teams currently undefeated and making a statement to football before conference play begins, someone will be going home with a 1 in the Loss column.. Will the outcome of this game give a hint to who may be holding the BCS National Championship Trophy at the end of the year? Only time will tell...

    Nebraska looks to continue their offensive attack after posting good numbers in their last two games.. Jr. running back Roy Helu should be seeing more action after two solid games against top ranked opponents. Nebraska can control the tempo of this game with an onslaught from the ground..

    Virginia Tech, who recently just made a coaching transition, will look to continue on with their defensive threat, having speed all around the secondary that can give a QB nightmares.. Sr. leader and free safety, Kam Chancellor needs to get his defense in the grind early on, make some big stops, and keep Nebraska's offense from taking control of the clock..

    This should really prove to be a difficult match both for sides. Both teams have had very impressive victories against tough teams so far. I really do believe the game is too close to call.
