Ohio State @ Nebraska (Saturday, 8:00 p.m., ABC)

Spread: Nebraska (-9.5)

As predicted last week Taylor Martinez would struggle against the poised Wisconsin defense. But this week is a whole new ballgame. There is no doubt in my mind that Bo Pelini ripped into his players this all week of practice after being emabarassed and will have his team ready to go Saturday night.

Ohio State looked terrible last week, so terrible that the first points they put up was in the last 14 seconds of the game. And just when the Buckeyes thought things couldn’t get any worse leading rusher, Dan Herron, and the top returning receiver, DeVier Posey, along with offensive lineman Marcus Hall will be benched by the NCAA. Take Nebraska here before the spread climbs over 10 points.
