Five storylines to watch in today's OSU vs. NU gam

Heading into today's Oklahoma State game, there are several key storylines to watch for both Nebraska and OSU.

For the Huskers and Cowboys, this is almost a must win type game for both teams if they want their 2007 seasons to stay on track. Here are all of the major storylines to watch as things get closer to kickoff.

Two teams desperate for a win

Nebraska may be 4-2, but it's the perception of their two losses that have many people worried about where this 2007 season is headed. NU desperately needs a win today inside Memorial Stadium to get things back on track and to settle down a restless Husker Nation.

On the flip side, Oklahoma State needs a win for head coach Mike Gundy to prove the Cowboys can win on the road. OSU is 1-11 on the road under Gundy, and they've already lost road games at Georgia, Troy and Texas A&M this season.

Will Suh be suspended?

One of the bigger storylines to watch for Nebraska will be the playing status of sophomore defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

During Tuesday's practice, Suh was involved in an altercation with offensive line Victory Haines. Reports from inside the locker room are Suh may have taken things too far when he broke Haines' nose during the fight.

The question is will head coach Bill Callahan suspend Suh for his actions towards Haines. This obviously seems out of character for Suh, so it will be interesting to see how Callahan handles this situation. Early speculation is Suh may be out for one quarter on Saturday.
