I'm not going to lie to you. I desperately want Nebraska to beat Oklahoma. In the pre-season, this was the game I ranked as the most important. I know it's not rational. This game falls very near my birthday. So, you could say that I want a Husker victory for my birthday. In my heart I know that is the emotional equivalent of a young kid asking for a real space ship or a live pony for his birthday. Nice idea...but probably not going to happen. Every way you look at it, Nebraska is facing an extremely tough team in the Sooners. Knowing how fervently I want the Huskers to win, I assume many of you do to. So, I'm compelled to outline some possibilities for how NU can overcome an enormous challenge.
