Nebraska vs Colorado: College Football Preview

The Nebraska Cornhuskers and Colorado Buffaloes are gearing up for an exhilarating college football showdown at Folsom Field. This game, scheduled for a noon ET kickoff, promises to be a thrilling contest that football enthusiasts won't want to miss.

 

Team Analysis

Nebraska Cornhuskers

As the Nebraska Cornhuskers prepare for this critical matchup, they carry with them the potential to not only compete but also cover the +3 points spread. Despite a narrow 13-10 loss to Minnesota in their season opener, there were promising signs for the Huskers.

Offensively, Nebraska displayed improvement, led by quarterback Jeff Sims. Sims, a transfer from Georgia Tech, showcased his dual-threat capabilities with 91 rushing yards and 114 passing yards with a touchdown. While turnovers were an issue, his potential to trouble opposing defenses is evident.

The rushing game, featuring Gabe Ervin Jr. and Anthony Grant, aims to make strides this season. The receiving corps, including Marcus Washington and Billy Kemp, provides stability. Head coach Matt Rhule, known for quick turnarounds, brings his expertise to the team.

Defensively, the Huskers have undergone changes, particularly in the defensive line. Linebacker Luke Reimer and cornerback Quinton Newsome lead the charge. With Myles Farmer and Issac Gifford in the secondary, the defense aims to be a force in this matchup.

 

Colorado Buffaloes

The Colorado Buffaloes enter this game with newfound optimism, but the Nebraska Cornhuskers are poised to cover the +3 points spread. Despite their thrilling victory over 17th-ranked TCU, the Buffaloes face a resilient Nebraska team.

Under the leadership of head coach Deion Sanders, the Buffaloes' offense has flourished. While Shedeur Sanders, Travis Hunter, and Dylan Edwards shone brightly, they now face a Nebraska defense determined to make amends.

Colorado's offense, guided by coach Sean Lewis, features playmakers like Jimmy Horn Jr. and Xavier Weaver. The running game, led by Kavosiey Smoke and Alton McCaskill, will be challenged by Nebraska's defense.

Defensively, the Buffaloes have made key transfers to bolster their ranks. While they have potential, they must contend with Nebraska's offensive improvements. This matchup will test their ability to prevent Nebraska from covering the spread.

 

Prediction

In this exciting showdown, the Colorado Buffaloes are favored by three points with a game total of 59.5 points. However, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have the potential to not only compete but also cover the +3 points spread.

If Nebraska can build on their defensive performance and minimize turnovers on offense, they stand a strong chance of covering the spread. Jeff Sims' dual-threat capabilities and the team's overall improvements make them a formidable opponent.

While Colorado's offense has been impressive, Nebraska's resilience and determination could lead to them covering the spread. Expect a closely contested game, with Nebraska striving to secure victory and cover the +3 points spread.
