Nebraska at Oklahoma State

Nebraska faces questions on offense coming into a Week 8 matchup with explosive Oklahoma State.

Nebraska offense vs. Oklahoma State defense
• The Cornhuskers struggled to find offensive rhythm last week against Texas. QB Taylor Martinez was slowed on the ground, and his struggles in the passing game got him pulled from the contest. Give the Texas defense some credit, but Nebraska hurt itself with missed assignments up front, dropped passes and poor ball security that led to five fumbles. Nebraska was fortunate to lose just one of the fumbles, but ball security must be a point of emphasis against Oklahoma State to prevent untimely turnovers from swinging momentum to the home team.
