No. 24 Nebraska bounced back from avoiding an upset at the hands of McNeese State by demolishing Fresno State, 55-19 to regain a spot in the AP Top 25.
Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw three touchdown passes against Fresno State, and running back Ameer Abdullah rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown.
The Cornhuskers currently rank 10th in the nation with 47 points scored per game as they are 21st in points allowed with 16.7.
Miami is coming off a 41-20 victory against Arkansas State, which improved their record to 2-1. Quarterback Brad Kaaya had an impressive performance with 342 yards, four touchdown passes and an interception on 16-of-24 passing.
Running back Duke Johnson also put together another solid game to remain a dark horse for the Heisman Trophy. He ran for 90 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.
Wide receiver Philip Dorsett exploded with 201 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four receptions. Despite their promising offense, the Hurricanes will face a big test from the Cornhuskers on defense.
The Hurricanes have only allowed 19.3 points per game, but they let Louisville score 31 on them in their sole loss of the season. Plus, the Cornhuskers have a Heisman-caliber running back with a reliable deep threat wide receiver in Jordan Westerkamp.
With home-field advantage, the Cornhuskers should prevail in what may be a close game against the Hurricanes.
Prediction: Nebraska 34, Miami 24
