Wisconsin football at Nebraska

Wisconsin football fans feel a lot better now than they did 10 days ago. Illinois continues to win and is already bowl eligible this year which takes a little bit of the sting out of that upset. Ohio State has bounced to a second place ranking in the national polls, looking like a contender in the College Football Playoff. The Badgers beat ranked Iowa last week, controlling three quarters of the contest. Perhaps the ship has been righted. 


Nebraska enters the game 4-5, still in a rebuilding process under second-year coach Scott Frost. The Cornhuskers feature a balanced offensive attack, averaging 188 yards on the ground and 223 yards passing. Quarterback Adrian Martinez presents a dual threat. Martinez has run the ball 97 times this year, most on the team. Wisconsin's defense will have to contain his production. 


Nebraska is not good defensively, giving up 400 yards of offense per game. Nebraska has lost three consecutive games. A fast start from the Badger offense could be demoralizing for the Cornhuskers. If Nebraska can hang around in front of a sold-out crowd and a highly touted visiting recruiting class things get a lot murkier.
