WATCH: BTN Previews Oregon vs. Nebraska

New, comments

Ducks head to Lincoln this weekend.

Jillian Mahen and Tom Dienhart of the Big Ten Network preview the big week three matchup between the Oregon Ducks and Nebraska in the above clip.

While BTN obviously focuses on the game more from the Nebraska side, Dienhart provides some interesting perspective on the matchup.

The Cornhuskers ran more in week 1 and passed more in week 2. Dienhart expects this game will clear up which of those two is the team’s true identity. He also says the home team need to score quite a bit if it wants to win.

The Ducks played a Power 5 team last week against Virginia, but the trip to Lincoln in many ways be the first real test of the season.

Dienhart also says Nebraska will need to run the ball against what he sees is a relatively weak Oregon defense. Easier said than done.
