I'm never good at this.

38 - 17.  Despite being severely out-hit by the Fighting Scott Frost's, Michigan cruises to an easy victory, with 10 of Nebraska's points having been scored in garbage time.

27-21. Michigan.  Fan mood remains cantankerous. All snowflake threads except special teams will be unpleasant. 1/3 of the season will be over and very little joy will have been had. We will be the crankiest 3-1 fan base in the country.

Going to be a really good game.  Back and forth relatively close, but Michigan's special teams are going to make some great plays.  Punt return for TD and 3 FGs ... makes the difference in an otherwise defensive game.  

Michgan 30 - Nebraska 14

I think Michigan will score more points than Nebraska.  Anything more specific than that and I have nothing to offer.  I can't get a handle on Michigan.  I can't get a handle on Nebraska.

I have no clue, but I feel confident is saying Michigan will win.

Hoping to see something like:

Michigan 38 - Nebraska 10, but wouldn't be surprised if it's closer to something like 31-21 Michigan winning.

Interesting.  So how does this go down?  Martinez plays and we can't contain him on the ground?  Bad turnovers deep in our territory?  A four overtime game where the actual score was 13-13?

If we were to lose the game, I think the most likely scenario is that our non-SMU offense shits the bed and we lose like 17-13.  A high scoring loss did not enter my mind.

I have PTSD.

Weird stuff seems to happen against Nebraska. The 2005 Alamo Bowl, for example. The Denard boo-boo game. Remember 2013 when they had the ABSOLUTE WORST run defense in college football? They were giving up like 220 ypg on the ground and they held us to negative yards rushing. If I were betting I would not actually pick Nebraska, but I just feel funny about this game. I know, great take.

If Martinez plays:  31 - 17 Michigan

If Martinez is still hurt:  38 - 9 Michigan

Over/under on rationalizations offered by Scott Frost on how this loss is actually a positive for his team:  8
