Nebraska is much more talented team than alot of people give them credit for. We have 4 very talented running backs that could all probably start on other teams, a very good (and underrated) quarterback and one of the better tight ends in the NCAA if Herian can return ro form. Our defense has a very good pass rush, solid linebackers and talented safeties. Our 1 weakness is cornerback (we've lost 3 already to knee injuries).
The key to winning this game for Nebraska is going to be pounding the ball right at USC. We are going to have to come out and play smash mouth football with USC and wear them down while keeping their offense off the field. With all 4 of our running backs, we should be able to do this with relative ease.
We're perfectly capable of beating USC, but it won't be easy.
