Nebraska enters the upcoming season ranked 18th by the Associated Press and the USA Today Coaches Poll.
A strong offense is projected to keep the Huskers going, while a young and talented defense is going to be tested to keep the Huskers in the lead. The 70-31 blowout in the Big Ten Championship and the 45-31 Capital One Bowl loss are both things of the past. Nebraska is ready to move forward.
This marks the seventh time Nebraska and Wyoming have met, with the last meeting in Laramie, Wyo., two seasons ago. The Huskers won that matchup 38-14 and currently hold a 6-0 series advantage over the Cowboys.
Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez leads an experienced offense that is out to win, according to Huskers.com. While the Huskers have an offense worth talking about, so do the Cowboys. The Wyoming offense will test Nebraska's defense right away. This could easily be a high scoring game for both teams.
