→Location: Lincoln, Neb.

→Mascot: Cornhuskers


→Record: 5-3, 2-2

Big 12

→Last game: Nate Swift caught two touchdowns and a career-high 11 passes to become Nebraska’s career receptions leader in a 32-20 victory over Baylor.

→Best player: Overshadowed by the wealth of talent at the position in the league, QB Joe Ganz is quietly having a fine season. Ganz completed 32 of 46 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns and added 42 yards rushing in the win over Baylor.

→Why they could win: In rivalry games, anything can happen. The Huskers have a nice 1-2 offensive punch with Ganz and Marlon Lucky, who might be the best RB in the Big 12 North. The defense is also playing much better since allowing 52 points to Missouri.

→Why they could lose: The Huskers have lost 11 straight against opponents ranked in the Top 10. Nebraska also struggles to get to the QB, which is a must to slow down the Sooner scoring machine.
