Anybody want to try guessing the score to the Oklahoma-Nebraska football game today? The winner is whoever comes closest to the margin of victory without going over, in addition to correctly picking the victor. All valid entries must be made by kickoff time. The winner receives a free book.

Tiebreakers will be determined by a complicated formula involving a numerical value attached to the contestant's preferred shade of red (although, if that doesn't work out, I'll just use the combined total score).

Prognosticate away.

I'll start off: Nebraska 28, Oklahoma 21.

If I win, I'll drive to a bookstore and present myself with a prize.

Say, that huge snowstorm forming in the Midwest won't be disgorging snow at gametime, will it?

27 Oklahoma, 20 Nebraska.

Where'd these Nebraska fans come from?

24-10 Huskers.

Sooners couldn't get it done at home to UT, won't get it down at neutral site vs. the Huskers.

Morley took my spread so I'll go with Oklahoma 27 and Nebraska 23 (rather than 24). My fave shade of red is "Fire Engine."

Sooners 17

Huskers 13

In the blowing 20 degree weather the Huskers discover why it's the "West Coast" offense.

Bruce Cleaver:

Not according to the weather forecasters -- Nothing but freezing cold for the team from further south and a mild wind that shouldn't greatly affect anybody's passing game. And the 80-plus percent of the stadium in Nebraska red will be freezing and ought to be moving around a lot to keep warm. Which means noise, lots of it.

You submitted two choices, we can only use one. If you don't reply to this by kickoff time, I'll go with the first one.
