Video from CFB Nerds. They use a comparative statistic model to predict the game. Few things to note is Nebraska annihilated Illinois statistically but because of 4 fumbles from Nebraska giving Illinois 21 points the score was much closer than it should have been. With their stats Nebraska did better against Illinois than OSU did against Cincinnati. The OT Colorado loss is also looking better as Colorado continues to play well.
All in all OSU is predicted to win 46-31 which is closer by 2 points than vegas. This should be the first game OSU is trying to score every time they get the ball for an entire four quarters against an ok defense. As the models show it is a huge test for the defense though. Nebraska has a very good offense and Adrian Martinez may be the best QB we see all season.
The two guys predicted OSU 41-24 and 49-35 and both agree this is a game to see if the defense is back to actually being top 10.
