Big 12 predictions: Week 14
By David Ubben
The perfect weeks have been elusive this year. I've missed a single game plenty of times, but managed a perfect week just once. I thought I might have one heading into Bedlam on Saturday night, but alas, it wasn't to be. I'm pretty satisfied with my record on the season, but after a season of doing it, I should be in good position for a perfect record in 2011.
We'll see if I can manage one this week with a schedule chock full of one whole game.
Last week: 5-1 (.833)
Overall: 76-19 (.800)
Oklahoma 17, Nebraska 16. This could end up being one of the more physical games of the entire season, but Oklahoma will cash in when it reaches the red zone more than Nebraska, and two touchdowns are better than one, of course. Alex Henery shows once again why he's so valuable, as do the Blackshirts, but Oklahoma's handful of offensive weapons prove to be too much. Landry Jones doesn't have a great statistical game, but he takes care of the ball, and supplementary offensive talents like Kenny Stills and Cameron Kenney make enough plays to win. Oklahoma confuses the Huskers front seven with its Diamond package enough to move the ball with some consistency, too.
