Yes, Scott Frost is gone, and Nebraska will be looking to make a statement. Nut I don’t see them being able to pull it together within one week to cover against an Oklahoma team that features a remarkably strong defensive presence for a Big 12 team, and who has started clicking offensively. I don’t think the Huskers will be able to defend Oklahoma, and while Nebraska QB Casey Martin is very talented, it won’t be enough to cover.
