    USC 49 Nebraska 31

    And it wasn't nearly that close. Nebraska is just an above average team. They don't have elite talent anymore.

    HSSB:
    Absolutely, positively, no chance of this happening.

    AJG, come on my man. No chance the 'Huskers get rolled up in Lincoln.

    Folks are putting WAY too much emphasis on the Wake game when it was easy to see the potential for the look-ahead. Let's not forget, that Wake team is pretty good and NU won in their place with an admittedly lackluster effort.


    Would you care to modify the above statement?

    I wanted to watch this game, but I don't regret watching UK/UL instead.

    Great job by USC... From all that I DID see, it wasn't close at all.

    If you are able to tape the UK/UofL game.....I'd love to get a copy if at all possible. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    It's funny... I was going to record it, but it seems like everytime I record something they lose, so I didn't... But now I wish I did... but then again, they might've lost then... Dangit.

    I know what you mean....I had my buddy put down some dough on UofL to cover the spread....I've never been so happy to lose money in my life.

    Obviously you didnt watch the game, if anything Keller was the only bright spot for NU. He threw for 369 yards and 2 tds.

    Other than his play, the huskers just flat out got whipped.

    Yeah, this game was 49-17 USC with about 9:30 to go in the 4th, and Huskers scored 2 TD's late.

    The Trojan running game was exceptional. They essentially had to rebuild the offensive line, and of all the places where SC's re-loads, that is the one place that is overlooked most. Stafon Johnson was like eighth string entering the year and runs for 160 yards. Hadn't even heard of some of those tailbacks.

    Keller actually played pretty well. He had Ellis in his face the whole day and still made some good throws to Purify. He did have two costly interceptions, but there should be no question that he is the starting QB.

    Yea, Nebraska got away from thier true identity several years ago & are now just another college team.

    Congrats to my Trojans. Taped this game while I was at Commonwealth Stadium watching the Cats beat the Cards.

    Saturday night was so strange...euphoria of UK upsetting the #9 team in the country and Nebraska just getting annhilated in Lincoln.

    I was dead wrong! I never (ever) thought that would happen. Shocked.

    UKMF, who didn't listen? I said as much in the thread from Wake game, Keller had been awful. However, as was alluded to, he played over his head in this one. However, no running game and no defense equal bad news in Lincoln.

    Very, very disappointing.
