Why Nebraska Will Win
And here’s the Adrian Martinez we’re all excited about.
Nebraska might have been steamrolled by Wisconsin, but the main man under center showed off what this can potentially be once all of the other parts around him start working.
He averaged close to ten yards per throw, ran for 89 yards, and was decisive and dangerous in his decision making. It didn’t all go perfectly right, but the foundation is being set for the next few years as he closes out the season looking the part.
The Maryland defense has had a few weeks off, but it’s been miserable.
The 73 given up against Ohio State was ugly, but that’s Ohio State. This D hasn’t been able to handle Minnesota, Indiana, Temple, or anyone. The Terps have given up 400 yards or more seven times in the last nine games.
Martinez and Nebraska should blow past 400 without breathing hard.
Why Maryland Will Win
How do the Terps want to move the ball?
Minnesota ran for 322 yards on the Nebraska defense, and Wisconsin rumbled for 320. In between that, Indiana and Purdue each threw for over 300 yards. The Husker defense only works when the opposing offense is struggling.
Yes, Maryland as a whole has melted down and it’s been a disaster lately – the offense is supposed to be a whole lot stronger than this – but that’s sort of what happens when you play a Minnesota team that’s a step away from playing for the Big Ten Championship, a red-hot Michigan team, and an Ohio State squad that’s probably going to win the national title.
Losing to Purdue and Indiana wasn’t okay, but the rough season was made a whole lot worst by playing some of the Big Ten’s elite teams. That’s not Nebraska. This is a team at Maryland’s own size.
The Husker O line isn’t doing well enough, overall the team is making too many mistakes, and the opportunities will be there for the Terps to finally start to look and play like they were expected to after the Syracuse game.
What’s Going To Happen
Maryland might have had two weeks off, and it’s going to show with one of its best offensive showings so far.
But Nebraska would do a whole lot more in a wild shootout.
The Huskers are still scratching and clawing for a bowl bid, needing to win this week and beat Iowa to close. Each team will have bad breakdowns, and each one will look awful in several ways, but they’re about to put together a fun-bad show.
