It doesn’t matter if it is ugly or pretty, Oklahoma needs to win today to stay alive in the championship races. Nebraska averages almost 300 yards through the air and nearly 150 yards on the ground so the Sooner defense will be tested again. The key to stopping Nebraska’s offense will be defending the middle where Austin Box will be playing his second game at the middle linebacker position.

Offensively don’t be surprised if the Sooners score under their average of 48 points. Nebraska likes to control the clock with their offense which results in lower scoring games. Remember they took Texas Tech to overtime in Lubbock and held the Red Raiders to their second lowest point total of the season. Remember, a win is a win!

Official Machine Prediction: 38-27 OU
