Colorado Buffaloes at #15 Nebraska Cornhuskers

Friday November 26, 2010 3:30 PM EST

Line: Nebraska -21

Colorado has been the most shaky road team this season as they are 0-4 and have not had many of those games close. They have a two game winning streak coming into this one, but going on the road expect that to go away. Nebraska will look to bounce back from a road loss at Texas A&M last week 9-6. Expect the Huskers to come home and play at a high level in their final home game of the season.

Stats to consider:

Colorado Buffaloes:

  • Colorado is 5-6 with a 2-5 Big 12 record.
  • They are 0-4 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 29.5 (84th)
  • Points for per game: 24.8 (81st)
  • Passing yards a game: 228.1 (56th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 140.5 (81st)

Nebraska Cornhuskers:

  • The Huskers are 9-2 with a 5-2 Big 12 record.
  • They are 5-1 at home.
  • Points against per game: 16.7 (9th)
  • Points for per game: 32.7 (28th)
  • Passing yards a game: 156.4 (106th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 269.5 (7th)

What to watch for:

  • The one bright spot for Colorado has been Junior RB Rodney Stewart who has 1,230 yards and 10 TDs this season. He is fresh off a game in which he ran for 195 yards and 2 TDs.
  • Huskers Freshman QB Taylor Martinez returned last weekend. He has thrown for 1,435 yards with 9 TDs and 5 Ints. He’s rushed for 974 yards and 12 TDs.
  • With Martinez still banged up, the running game will revolve around Senior RB Roy Helu Jr. Helu has 1,043 yards and 10 TDs this week. In the two Huskers loses, Helu has been held without a TD.

Most sports picks revolve around how teams do away from home. Colorado has been scary in a bad way on the road. They have not won a game on the road and have only one game that was within 26 points. Nebraska will need to get Roy Helu Jr. the ball early and often. Helu only received 9 carries last week, and that should easily double this week in a huge double digit victory for Nebraska in their final home game.
