Guess The Score! NU-FAU!

Our weekly guess-the-score feature returns for the football season! Yah!

OK, so we're expanding the game a little bit this year, and asking for you to predict three things:

1. The Score
2. Offensive MVP
3. Defensive MVP


Our prediction:

We weighed two factors in arriving at a score:

Just how well do Bo Pelini defenses typically fare against straight pro-style offenses? Pretty well, especially if the quarterback is forced to stay in the pocket. Only Oklahoma's Sam Bradford really picked NU apart last year without being mobile or in a classic spread offense, and he did that behind a terrific offensive live, at home, with no huddle, and the benefit of three straight turnovers. Rusty Smith has few, if any, of those advantages.

How conservative will NU keep the gameplan? We think it'll stay pretty vanilla after the first quarter. Nebraska should be able to run right at FAU. That'll eat yards in smaller chunks and the clock in larger ones.

As a result, we think the game will be a little lower scoring than predicted, much like last year's New Mexico State game. The score there was 38-7. We'll take 34-7 Nebraska in this one.

Our offensive MVP: Roy Helu
Our defensive MVP: Barry Turner

NEBRASKA - 41
FAU - 24

Nebraska should wear down their inexperienced defense and take control of this game in the second half.

FAU offense has some players and will probably make some plays and a few of those could be big plays for points.

GBR!

Sloppy offense leads to few points, except for....
O MVP - Niles Paul - Turns in a big game complete with TD on a reverse and other key catches and punt returns. (I know, not likely...)
D MVP - Assante - Confidence in Defensive system leads to 3 INTs.
