The big question facing the Huskers this week, how to beat Oregon? For this kind of knowledge, it takes a Doctor to figure it out (okay maybe not), and that's why you are listening to this week's Husker DocTalk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy.
This week, Dr. Rob Zatechka goes deep into this showdown against the Ducks by stating the obvious. Yes, the obvious! Sometimes we get caught up in over-analyzing X's and O's, schemes, personnel, and we forget to look at the basic stuff that wins football games. The ability to run the football. Not turning the ball over on offense and creating turnovers on defense.
Yes, Oregon has speed. Yes, Oregon has athletes. Yes, Oregon has cool Nike uniforms. Yes, Oregon will score fast and a lot. But the Quack attack as flaws and they haven't been tested to this point at this stage in the season. It will be interesting to see how graduate transfer quarterback playing on a HUGE stage in a hostile environment will handle the pressure.
We know, or at least we think we know that the Huskers will put up points on offense. The question is, what is the total the Blackshirts have to the Ducks at to get a win? Dr. Rob tells you what he thinks that point total is.
