The Oklahoma Sooners will play the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a non-conference game on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Oklahoma Sooners are 2-0 this season after defeating Kent State by a score of 33-3 and UTEP by a score of 45-13. In their win against Kent State, Oklahoma started the game slow on offense, but was able to score 26 points in the second half for the 30-point win. The Oklahoma offense is averaging 39 points per game with 264.5 passing yards per game and 196.5 rushing yards per game. Dillon Gabriel has thrown for 529 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions for the Sooners. Eric Gray has rushed for 173 yards, while Marvin Mims has caught 10 passes for 244 yards and two touchdowns for Oklahoma. The Oklahoma defense has allowed 8 points per game and 305.5 yards per game.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are 1-2 this season after defeating North Dakota and losing to Northwestern and Nebraska. Nebraska blew a fourth quarter lead last week against Georgia Southern and lost 45-42. The Nebraska offense is averaging 36 points per game with 288.7 passing yards per game and 203.7 rushing yards per game. Casey Thompson has thrown for 866 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also running for four touchdowns for the Cornhuskers. Anthony Grant has rushed for 428 yards and five touchdowns, while Trey Palmer has caught 18 passes for 231 yards for Nebraska. The Nebraska defense has really struggled this season and is allowing 31 points per game and 492 yards per game.

Oklahoma is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 September games. The under is 4-0 in Oklahoma’s last 4 September games. Nebraska is 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 September games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 4-1 in Nebraska’s last 5 games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Nebraska is coming off of a very disappointing loss to Georgia Southern, but has a chance to turn things around with a big win in this game. The Cornhuskers fired their coach after last week’s loss and will have a chance to have somewhat of a new start. Oklahoma didn’t look great against Kent State, but they still won by 30 points. Nebraska has been good on offense this season, but has been really bad on defense. I expect Oklahoma to move the ball very easily and I like the over in this game.
