Which program has the advantage heading into this contest? This along with the rest of the rankings had a lot of people talking and criticizing the new system but in reality, it is such a small sample size that it is bound to look different and slightly confusing. However, Ohio State is the No.
They will also be on the road in a hostile environment Saturday and Huskers quarterback Adrian Martinez is the most dynamic player they've faced. We have to handle that. It's our first big challenge as a team.
In Nebraska's win last week over Illinois, he threw for yards and three touchdowns and ran for another, becoming the second player in school history to throw for yards and run for in a game. The Buckeyes , have a pretty good quarterback, too.
Justin Fields is shaping up to be everything Day expected when he lured him from Georgia. He threw for four touchdowns, bringing his season total to 13, and ran for two more last week against Miami. He started the game with a fumble in the end zone for a safety but engineered 47 points in the second quarter alone on the way to a Ohio State victory.
He has yet to throw an interception. He can run, so he can take off and run.
Dwyane Haskins didn't have that ability too much. A guy like Fields , he's very mature, and he's really good at making pretty good decisions. After a season-opening win over South Alabama, Nebraska lost to Colorado and then had to rally to beat Illinois on the road last week.
The Buckeyes were listed as a point favorite on Tuesday. Frost said Ohio State is his team's biggest challenge since he got to Lincoln. Martinez said the Huskers are ready.
There's not much else to it.
The guys know the task at hand and realize that we have to be dialed in and focused this week. All rights reserved About Us.
