Game preview Nebraska vs Colorado

The unbeaten Buffaloes are coming off of an impressive win against TCU on the road while Nebraska continues its disappointing starts to seasons, giving away a fourth-quarter lead against Minnesota 13-10 and losing. Both teams have new coaches which has created excitement around both campuses, but Coach Prime had created the most buzz around the country with an enigmatic leader who has seemingly turned around the Buffs program in a matter of months.

The Colorado Buffaloes enter this matchup unbeaten. Last time out against TCU Horned Frogs, Colorado won by 45-42 when Sy’veon Wilkerson ran 13 times for 45 yards – which averaged out to an average of 3.5 per carry for Colorado! Shedeur Sanders (4 TDs) finished the contest with 510 passing yards on 38/47 passing and earned a quarterback rating of 200.1, tossing no interceptions and an average yards per pass attempt average of 10.9. Colorado surrendered 37 rushes for 262 yards (7.1 yards per rush attempt). The Colorado Buffaloes passed defense conceded a completion percentage of 57.1%, giving up 279 yards on 24 of 42 passing attempts for 565 total yards (565 total), running 81 plays (7.0 yards per play), with Colorado running for an average tote rate of 1.6 yards per tote for 55 total carries in this game.

Will the Cornhuskers pull the upset

The Nebraska Cornhuskers enter this game holding an unfavorable record of 0-1, having recently fallen 13-10 to the Minnesota Golden Gophers in their most recent matchup. Jeff Sims completed 11/19 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown during this contest. He posted a quarterback rating of 94.1 and finished with three picks, with Jeff Sims leading Nebraska’s offense. Nebraska Cornhuskers ran 37 times to amass 181 yards at an average of 4.9 yards per carry. They allowed 55 yards on 25 attempts for an average of 2.2 yards per run allowed against them in this running game. Nebraska also completed 24 passes out of 44 attempts with an impressive completion rate of 54.5%.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Buffalos -2.5

No matter how impressive Colorado was in Week 1 or how poorly Nebraska performed in Week 1, rivalry games are always an eventful, unpredictable affair that will change all perceptions.

This game could come down to who scores first. Nebraska could benefit from using their run game instead of overly relying on Jeff Sims, an offensive quarterback with a history of turnovers, who could help stabilize Nebraska against Colorado if he can eliminate the turnovers. On the other hand, Colorado might capitalize on scoring early and often enough that Nebraska becomes a passing team, and their defense can capitalize against Nebraska.

Nebraska’s defense played well against Minnesota, but Colorado has more weapons than Nebraska. Colorado will score first and cover their new line to claim a 42-17 victory.
