Don't Bet On It!: National Game of Disinterest

New, 10 comments

This week’s SEC action has been covered and I have made a good faith effort to locate national games of nominal interest. The struggle to find qualifying contests for the latter category made the selection of this week’s national game of disinterest particularly challenging, since, frankly, all of the games being played this weekend seemed to be in contention for the honor.

In the end, though, there could be only one:

Oklahoma Sooners at Nebraska Cornhuskers

You can go on and on about the history and tradition of this rivalry all you like, but, at the end of the day, it’s still a 5-3 also-ran taking on a 5-3 also-ran.

Oklahoma comes into this game having beaten Idaho State, Tulsa, Baylor, Kansas, and Kansas State. Nebraska comes into this game having carded victories over Florida Atlantic, Arkansas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Missouri, and Baylor.

The only thing this game has to offer is conclusive proof that all the folks who criticize the non-conference schedules of SEC teams have no room to talk. I’m not picking it because I don’t care which of these teams wins the Sun Belt championship.

Coming Soon: Too Much Information.
