Joe D'Amico's NCAAF 100 Star Game of the Month
Minnesota vs. Nebraska,
11/17/2012 15:30 EDT,
Score: 14 - 38
Point Spread: -20/-110 Nebraska
Saturday's winner is Nebraska over Minnesota. This is my 100 Star GoM.
Nebraska is the #14 ranked team in the nation, tied with Michigan for first place in the Big 10. They come into this matchup with Minnesota after LYs meeting resulted in a 41-14 thumping of the Golden Gophers. The Cornhuskers have won 4 in a row SU, going 2-1-1 ATS. At home, Nebraska is outscoring visitors by 25.0 PPG TY. Taylor Martinez has 2112 YP and 19 TDs in the air and another 770 YR and 8 scores on the ground. Soph RB, Ameer Abdullah has tallied 942 YR and 8 TDs (4 straight 100 + yards performances). The key to this matchup is the Cornhuskers ground attack. The Golden gophers allow 5.2 YPC and 194 rushing YPG. UM has a frosh QB in Philip Nelson, who threw for a mere 78 yards LW vs. Illinois. Their OL is hurting and the receiving corps is shaky at best. As a road team, they are 1-3 ATS on the season. The Cornhuskers put the Conference Title in their pocket here. Take Nebraska. Thank you.
