Bruins and Corhuskers Faceoff in Lincoln
Two teams that are expected to put up a lot of points clash Saturday in Lincoln, as the Nebraska Cornhuskers host the UCLA Bruins in a rematch of last year’s game. The OVER is 7-1 in UCLA’s last eight games and 6-1-1 in Nebraska’s last eight games, setting the stage for some offensive fireworks when these two teams meet at high noon.
The Bruins looked great in their season debut against Nevada, crushing the Wolfpack 58-20 to easily cover the spread as 20.5-point favorites at home. While the defense is a concern for the Bruins this season, the offense looks better than ever with sophomore dual-threat quarterback Brett Hundley at the helm.
Like UCLA, Nebraska has an excellent dual-threat quarterback in Taylor Martinez. And defense is also a concern for the Cornhuskers, especially after giving up 34 points at home to Wyoming in a 37-34 nail-biter that should have been anything but with the Huskers favored by 31 points.
