Virgil Parker prediction: Oklahoma 35, Nebraska 31. Score sound familiar? It may well be just that kind of a game. Another real epic between the two perennial Big Eight powers. Oklahoma has dominated the series since the “Game of the Decade” in 1971. The Sooners appear to have too much quickness and speed.
