Containing the UNI qb will be the big challenge. He's the top rusher besides an excellent passer. They give up about 20+ points a game, so scoring is not out of the question.

The best defense would be Lynch standing on the sideline.

Hope we can give the Huskies a big dose of Woodley, Wilson and Bedell.
