Oklahoma is proving to everyone that Nebraska’s problems go much deeper than Scott Frost.
One week after firing Scott Frost as its head coach, the Nebraska football program looks to be in complete disarray vs. old Big Eight rival Oklahoma.
The Sooners took a commanding 35-7 lead over the Cornhuskers at the half. If the score holds up, the Huskers will drop to a disastrous 1-3 on the season. Although Mickey Joseph will do his best up until the Iowa game on Black Friday, it might be time to turn our attention to Cornhuskers football beginning next spring. For now, Oklahoma is absolutely boat racing the Huskers in Lincoln.
It should not be coming as a surprise, but the Huskers’ days of losing by one score might be over…
Oklahoma is dismantling Nebraska, proving Scott Frost was only tip of iceberg
Although the Cornhuskers scored on their first offensive possession of the game, it did not take long before the Sooners rendered the Blackshirts defense completely useless.
While Oklahoma looks to be a serious contender to win the Big 12 and make the College Football Playoff, it remains to be seen if the Cornhuskers will win more than three games again this season.
The absolute shame in it all is everybody knows how good Nebraska fans are. They deserve so much better than this perpetual nonsense they have been subjected to since firing Bo Pelini. It is unfathomable at this point that the Cornhuskers are the laughingstock of major college football. What an absolute fall from grace!
Ultimately, what this rivalry game signifies is how much has changed since the old Big Eight days. The Cornhuskers and the Sooners used to dominate that conference. While they did to a degree in when they were in the Big 12, so much has gone for the worse with Nebraska going to the Big Ten. Let’s hope that OU is ready to rock once they leave the Big 12 for the SEC alongside big rival Texas.
If you are a person who digs pain, feel free to enjoy Nebraska games like this one going forward.
