Five OSU Players to Watch
Wide receiver Justin Blackmon: He’s a jump ball artist who will be getting the first true challenge of the year. He won’t be used to a physical specimen like Prince Amukamara (or Alfonzo Dennard) covering him.
Running back Kendall Hunter: The senior leader and bellcow will be a focal point of the Cowboys’ gameplan on Saturday. He has the toughness to run inside, the hands to catch the ball on the run and the speed to make NU’s linebackers look pretty bad.
Linebacker Orie Lemon: OSU’s best defensive player won’t necessarily be the guy who shuts down Taylor Martinez, but he will be responsible for making plays on the second level, which is key to slowing down NU’s running game. The Cowboys’ defensive front isn’t in the same league as Texas, so the linebackers will need to make plays.
Athlete Joseph Randle: OSU’s newest weapon is just a true freshman, but he’s fast and shifty and he’ll be another guy for Nebraska track all over the field. He’s equally versatile as a runner and a pass catcher.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden: He hasn’t faced a pass defense nearly as sophisticated as Nebraska’s and Weeden’s already thrown eight interceptions this year. Look for NU to hit him early and often and make him bail on timing patterns.
