Damn Bryn Renner.  All I needed was a garbage touchdown and his aimless scrambling left me five yards short.  JUST LIKE A MAN!!!

This week's matchup are a lot of shitty games this week.  Should be easy to take money, right!!!

Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles vs Nebraska Cornhuskers
Colorful matchup!

When:  5:00 PM CT

Where:  Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE

History:  Nebraska is 3-1 all time (meaning the last 15 years).  It's 1/10 of the Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry!  Tradition!

Significance:  Southern Miss lost to Texas State last week despite quarterback Allan Bridgford throwing for 377 yards.  Nebraska beat Wyoming last week despite Cowboys quarterback Brett Smith throwing for 383 yards and 4 TDs.  So, if A=B and B=C, then A=C, right?  RIGHT?

Essentially, this is a game that will either prove or disprove humanity's perception of mathematics.  We shall call it the MATH BOWL!!!

Consensus Vegas Line (as of 6/7, noon CT):  Nebraska by 28.  Southern Miss covers, only because Nebraska misses an extra point.  Nebraska 41, Southern Miss 14.  The O/U is 58 1/2, so, no, that won't happen.  This is Nebraska and Southern Miss.  C'mon.

Question to Ponder:  Why am I watching this?

What Else:  Southern Mississippi's only win in this series was when Bill Callahan was the coach of the Cornhuskers.  So that's hilarious and obvious.

No bonus game this week because Flubber is running low on funds.  You can send money to the refugee camp where he will soon be living.
