Nebraska, 9-1 and No. 8 in the BCS, travels to College Station to face Texas A&M, 7-3 and rated No. 19 in the BCS. The Aggies have won four straight games after benching quarterback Jerrod Johnson, the Big 12 preseason offensive player of the year.
Nebraska's redshirt freshman-phenom quarterback, Taylor Martinez, is expected to play although he has been limited by an ankle injury suffered two weeks ago in Nebraska's win over Missouri.
Nebraska could clinch the Big 12 North title with a win or if Missouri loses to Iowa State. The Aggies were eliminated from contention to win the Big 12 South due to Oklahoma State's win at Kansas this afternoon.
Nebraska has a 10-3 advantage over Texas A&M in the series overall, including a 2-1 record at Kyle Field. Nebraska won the most recent game in College Station, 28-27. Texas A&M won the most recent matchup between the two schools, defeating Nebraska 36-14 in Lincoln in 2007.
