The Huskers will have to focus and make sure they cover DeQuece Carter
Fordham likes to throw the ball. A lot. The Rams were incredibly proficient at moving the ball through the air in the spring. There’s only a small sample size to work with because of how few games the Rams played earlier this year, but this team was averaging nearly 350 passing yards per game.
Because of that, Nebraska must do what it can to lock down one of the best receivers Fordham has on its roster: DeQuece Carter.
Carter was an incredibly reliable receiving option for the Rams in the spring. At 6-0 and 197 pounds, Carter is far from being the biggest or strongest wide receiver ever, but he’s definitely still tall enough to create some match up issues for a lot of defensive backs. Nebraska can’t afford to take him lightly.
When the Rams played their incredibly shortened season in the spring, Carter was second on the team in the passes caught and receiving yards, but he was tied for the most receiving touchdowns. Through three games, Carter caught 19 passes for 274 yards and two touchdowns. He averaged 14.4 yards per reception and 91.3 receiving yards per game.
The Huskers should not overlook that. With the experience that Fordham has on its offense, Nebraska should keep a close eye on Carter and make sure he doesn’t tear through the Huskers’ secondary.
If they don’t they may find that Carter could do some damage to their defense and find himself in the end zone. Given how last week went, Nebraska needs to prevent that and make a statement.
