Could Braxton Miller win the Heisman Trophy?
It is going to be hard to knock of Geno Smith, who is my Heisman front runner. The West Virginia signal caller threw 8 touchdowns Saturday against Baylor. As great as Braxton Miller has been, he has not had that “Heisman moment.” When you are the 9th ranked rusher in the country, like Miller is, anything is possible.
Is Nebraska V. Ohio State the biggest game of the college football weekend?
In Nebraska? Yes. In the country? No. I don’t think it gets any bigger than South Carolina V. Georgia this weekend. College Game Day will be there. There is a lot of great matchups going on this weekend. Nebraska at Ohio State is for sure top 5 on that list.
What will the Blackshirts have to do to stop Braxton Miller? Go Big Red
They will have to do something that we have not seen this defense do consistantly all season. Play assignment football. The Huskers will have a spy on the field on every play. It will more than likely be a Corey Cooper, or Harvey Jackson. It would have more than likely been Zaire Anderson if he would not have torn his ACL. Seniors Cameron Meredith, and Eric Martin along with the rest of the defensive ends, are going to have to play the best game of their careers if they hope to contain Miller.
Burkhead didn’t look to explosive Saturday. Is he still hurt?
Senior running back Rex Burkhead did look more slugish than usual. When he ran he clearly fav0red that left knee that he sprained his MCL. Rex kind of rushed the injury by playing against Idaho State. I don’t think he reinjured the knee or anything, but I don’t think he was ready to come back, and I still don’t. I think for the Huskers to be succesful against a great pass rush that the Buckeyes have, Ameer Abdullah will have to have a huge game, to keep Ohio State on their heels.
Does Nebraska have the best offensive line in the Big 10?
We have seen the Big 10 offensive lines struggle early and often this season. I think the Huskers have been the most consistant through 5 games out of the 12 Big 10 teams. That does not make them the best. I still think Michigan State still has the best offensive line unit in the Conference, but Nebraska is getting better every day. In my power rankings I have Ohio State ranked as the top offensive line, just because of the numbers they have helped put up. Michigan State has struggled slightly against top flight competition, but I think they are the most talented group.
Offensive Power Rankings
Does Nebraska have a chance at beating Ohio State
Do they have a chance? Yes. Is it a huge chance? No. I think Ohio State is the better team, especially upfront on both sides of the ball. Ohio State has the best defensive line in the Conference, and their offensive line is clearly better than Nebraska’s front 7 defensivly. The one Husker who is going to have a HUGE game for Nebraska to pull off this win is Will Compton. The senior linebacker is going to have to make up for missed tackles or out of position plays, because this season he is the only one to have shown the ability to do it.
