Between the three of Alabama, FSU and Nebraska, this is likely the best balanced offense we've faced this year. The only game I got to see them play was @Texas Tech, when they led late and their defense folded. Joe Ganz is a good, capable QB. In the only game I watched, they were a multiple-set offense that aims for balance. I tended to think of it as a meld between the ball-control SEC offenses and the spread offenses of the Big XII. Recall that the players Callahan brought in were geared towards his West-Coast style.

Pelini's background is on the defensive side, so I'd expect them to have a good gameplan for us. The talent on the defensive side is lacking, and they have had some big injuries hit them. Having seen alot of Pelini at LSU, I know the types of defenses he runs. Its a 4-3 with alot of confusing zone blitzing schemes and he will play press-man and Cover 0/2 otherwise. Expect more Cover 2 against the spread we run. I'm not sure the talent at Nebraska is at the level where he can get away with mostly rushing 4 like he did at LSU, especially judging from their sack stats.
