Nebraska faces Oklahoma on Saturday, September 18th, at Memorial Stadium for a Week 3 college football matchup. 

After Nebraska's season opener loss to Illinois, the Cornhuskers have managed to win back-to-back games against non-Power 5 teams to move to 2-1 on the year. Nebraska's first win of the season came against Fordham in a 52-7 final score. The most recent was a 28-3 win against Buffalo in which Nebraska covered the 14-point spread. Nebraska's offense is still led by dual-threat quarterback, Adrian Martinez. Martinez struggled in Week 0 but has put together two strong showings since. Nebraska has run the football well this season, eclipsing more than 160 yards on the ground in each of its three games. Nebraska's secondary has held up virtually well but opposing ground games are earning more than 4.0 yards per carry. Nebraska will face its toughest test this season in this one, a test that will be far too much for the Huskers to handle. 

After Oklahoma's Week 1 scare against Tulane, the Sooners were able to play an FCS team in Western Carolina in Week 2. Oklahoma thrashed Western Carolina by the final score of 76-0 in what was an ugly game from start to finish. Oklahoma earned 624 total yards in the win and allowed only 178 to its opposition. On the year, star quarterback Spencer Rattler is 50-65 passing for 547 passing yards, six touchdown passes, and two interceptions. The leading running back for Oklahoma has been Kennedy Brooks, who has had 20 total rushes for 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Oklahoma will look for another comfortable win at home here as it prepares for Big 12 play against West Virginia next week.

Oklahoma is a 22.5-point favorite and the total is set at 62. I do not see Nebraska competing in this game, as Oklahoma is going to be too much offensively. Nebraska's offense has not been good enough to get in a scoring battle with the Sooners here, and I see Oklahoma winning this game by 24-points or more at home.
