David, I hope you're right, but I wouldn't put money on it.
I'm actually going to a Texas Hold 'Em / Texas v. Texas Tech football party tonight, so I'm going to have to twist some arms to get the guys to flip back and forth to the NE game. It could be that I'll be glad I'm not watching it all as it definitely could turn into a rout quickly.
I'm trying to set reasonable expectations and have decided that I'll consider it a wash if Texas OR Nebraska wins today. (even if I lose at poker, which is most normally the case)
