Free NCAA Pick: Nebraska at Texas A & M 11-20-2010

November 20, 2010


#8 Nebraska Cornhuskers at #19 Texas A & M Aggies

Saturday November 20th, 2010 8:30 PM EST

Line: Nebraska -3


9-1 Nebraska will look to further secure their spot in their last Big 12 Championship ever. Standing in their way are the Texas Aggies, who are 7-3 on the season. The Aggies have won four in a row. They already knocked off a #8 team earlier in this year. Can they do it again?

Keys to the Game:

  • Taylor Martinez has been a huge part of the offense this season. His mobility was not 100 percent last game when they took on Kansas, which made for adverse effects on offense. Martinez will be another game removed from his ankle injury, making the Nebraska offense as dynamic as iit has been all season. Look for Martinez to look more comfortable on his legs than he did last week.
  • Jerod Johnson needs to be stingy with his throws. He has thrown four interceptions in a game twice this season already. While he looks more poised in the pocket lately -which explains the recent win streak- Johnson needs to continue to make smart decisions. Staying away from dangerous throws to Prince Amukamara’s side is a step in the right direction.
  • The trenches will probably be won by Nebraska, but don’t sleep on the Aggies offensive line. They are improving every single week and have shown a new physicality that has lacked in previous weeks. Don’t be surprised to see a big day on the ground for the Aggies. Nebraska will likely be caught off guard by any success A & M has on the ground, making for an interesting battle up front.

Wrap Up:

Texas A & M is playing great football. They have sured up a few problem areas and looked unshakable against Oklahoma. Nebraska has had a great season, but they have been involved in battles against lower ranked teams a few times already this year. While three points isn’t a big spread, I see this coming down to a last second field goal.
