It’s going to be strength against weakness in Lincoln tomorrow (Saturday) night, as the Wyoming Cowboys visit 18th ranked Nebraska. Last season, the Pokes gave up an average of 232 yards on the ground, while Nebraska’s strength, as it’s been for years, was running the football, as the Huskers were 8th in the country last year. Wyoming is hoping that a second year under defensive coordinator Chris Tormey, and a switch to a three-man front, will be the changed needed to get the defense going. But it won’t be east as the Huskers will run out Ameer Abduallah, who rushed for 1200 yards last season. Cowboy head coach Dave Christensen believes it’s about being in the proper position to make plays.
The Cowboys and Nebraska open the season in Lincoln. Kickoff at Memorial Stadium tomorrow is set for 6 pm mountain time.
