I would like to apologize for my 8 month vacation from posting, there has been much news in the college football landscape. I have been meaning to get back to posting, and analyzing, but life has been getting in the way.

That is going to change. I will not be as ambitious as I was last fall — nearly posting every day — but I will post the most important news, and I will do pregame breakdowns, postgame reports, and analysis of Nebraska and prominent national games.

So join me as I try go get back into the swing of things. Thanks!

Oklahoma’s offense is lightning quick, and amazingly efficient. This was shown in great detail last saturday as the Sooners manhandled the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Norman, OK., to the tune of 62-28.

The game started off with a great kickoff return by DeMarco Murry that set up a very short field for OU. They were then able to capitalize with a two yard touchdown less than three minutes into the game.

When the Huskers got the ball, their first play from scrimmage resulted in a touchdown … for Oklahoma. Oklahoma cornerback Dominique Franks jumped the wide receiver screen and took the ball 17 yards for a quick 14-0 lead.

On the Huskers’ next possession, Nebraska tight end Dreu Young caught a pass for a first down, but subsequently was hit and fumbled the ball at the¬†Oklahoma 48-yard-line.

50 seconds later, Sam Bradford — went 19 for 27 for 311 yards, five touchdowns and an interception —¬†hit Quentin Chaney for a 48-yard touchdown to put the Sooners up 21-0 with 10:31 left in the first quarter.

The game didn’t end there Continue reading

Here we go!

Welcome to The College Game, a blog about college football – brought to you by a college student who happens to be a college football freak. Obviously I live in Nebraska – and attend UNL – and will probably be focusing more on the Huskers than any other team. However, my love of college football does extend past just the Huskers and I hope to bring you information from around the nation about the best college sport out there. So stay tuned for updates as the season draws near.
