Huskers vs Troy

Huskers look to bounce back from last week's loss to USC, facing off against the Trojans from Louinsiana. Troy has been a frequent visitor to Lincoln over the last decade, but bring a new look this year with a spread offensive attack coordinated by former Kentucky coordinator Tony Franklin. Troy has played well in losses to Floria State and Georgia Tech, holding second half leads before succumbing , primarily due to costly mistakes. They average almost 340 yds/game offensively, primarily passing the ball 30-40 times a game.

Troy's defense is a bit undersized, but fast and scrappy. It should prove to be a challenging day on both sides of the ball, but we should be able to move it on them, hopefully with more consistency. GA Tech gouged them for 320 yds on the ground on 41 carries for a 7.8 yds a pop, so the ground attack could have a big day. It will be interesting to note if Marlon Lucky continues to start and how much we see of the other backs this week heading into Big 12 play.
I forsee us mixing it up better than we did last week due to some of the criticism levied at last week's game plan.
