    This game is all about the coaches being in the news as Nebraska HC Pelini issued an apology after his actions LW against Texas A&M and on the other side CU interim coach Cabral is making his case for the permanent HC gig as the Buffaloes are off B2B Big 12 wins. The Buffs are still in bowl contention after their 44-36 win over K St as RB Stewart accounted for 267 yd and 3 TD. The pass rush has also been reenergized with 14 sks L/2. Meanwhile, Nebraska couldn’t wrap up the North vs A&M, losing 9-6 thanks in part to 16 pen and 2 TO’s. QB Martinez reinj’d his ankle vs the Ags as he missed 1.5Q’s and will probably miss this game as Cody Green will probably get the start. The Huskers have gone from 38 ppg and 459 ppg in the 1st 8 with Martinez at 100% to 19 ppg and 339 ypg in the L/3 and with Martinez probably out, this game will be much closer than many expect.

    PHIL’S FORECAST: nebraska 27 colorado 21

    I agree with Steele. CU definitely has a much better chance with Martinez out and how well they have played of late.

    this sounds about right except I think the total points scored will be a tad lower-
    NU 20-14 or something along those lines

    I don't think I have ever been as "pumped" for a game as I am for this one.

    I'm thinking this going to be a low scoring, defensive struggle for both teams

    CU 22 NU 21

    Friday can't get here soon enough:woot:
