The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had issues scoring in their two biggest games of the season so far, and they don't defend the three ball well. The Memphis Tigers are simply too talented of a team to continue these hit or miss results, and you'd think they'd show up here after a frustrating loss to Seton Hall. There's just no excuse not for Memphis to get the job done here. Give me Memphis and whatever the line is.
