Midwest Sports Fans:
What was supposed to be one of the marquee matchups in 2011 Big Ten conference play has lost some of its luster over the past two weeks.
Ohio State will travel to Lincoln, Nebraska to face the 14th-ranked Cornhuskers Saturday night in a meeting of powerhouse programs desperate for a conference win.

The join us at Daily Joust for this week’s FREE $250 Big Ten fantasy college football challenge. (Details here.)
Nebraska is coming off a disappointing trip to Wisconsin in which they were throttled 48-17 by the Badgers. The Cornhuskers’ star dual-threat quarterback Taylor Martinez threw three interceptions and their defense couldn’t find any answers for Wisconsin’s pummeling rushing attack.
Ohio State is coming off a 10-7 home loss to Michigan State, in which their offense sputtered feebly until the final minute. A Joe Bauserman 34-yard touchdown pass ...

Conference match-ups dominate this week’s college football picks. The Big 12 features the Red River Rivalry (OU vs. Texas at Dallas). The Big 10 sees Ohio State travelling to Nebraska. And the SEC has Florida at LSU.
Here are my top five picks of the week:
1. Oklahoma vs. Texas (at Dallas) (Noon, ABC) - The Sooners are looking like the class of the Big 12, and this annual rivalry...

With Nebraska facing Ohio State for the first time as a conference foe on Saturday, is it possible Bo Pelini is trying to make a good impression on his alma mater in hopes he lands the head coaching job there next season?
News flash: Nebraska fans were perfectly aware of run-oriented quarterback Taylor Martinez's limitations as a passer before his three-interception flop Saturday in a 48-17 loss at Wisconsin. So was offensive coordinator Tim Beck, who took the blame Monday for his "boneheaded" decision to call plays in the second and third quarters as if he was running a run-and-shoot...

Tough week and a tough loss!
But it is now time to focus on our next opponent, the Big Ten newcomer, Nebraska. Nebraska didn't have a great showing against Wisconsin in their conference opener, but I chalk that up to a big stage, a big time crowd and 3 INT by their quarterback, Taylor Martinez. The Nebraska defense didn't show up as well...
Speedy Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez will make the defense pay if it doesn't do a good job of tackling, but he is prone to mistakes.
Nebraska entered the Big Ten conference thinking they could waltz in and dominate, just like they did in the Big 12 *cough cough* North *cough cough* only the last two years. An over confident team that quite frankly has a one dimensional offense should never feel overconfident against a very talented team that is now a perennial BCS team, Wisconsin.
Just about everyone witnessed...
