The Nebraska Cornhuskers are obviously the better team on paper, and their defensive effort has been insane through their first 4 games. With that said, Oregon State deserves some credit as well, and that offense could give Nebraska some issues. Both teams are playing well at the moment, so I'm not going to leave a lot of points on the table with either side. Give me the Beavers and the points.
