What you need to know
The Wisconsin Badgers have been 5-0-1 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers since October 2015 and will have a chance to build on that success on Saturday. The Badgers and Nebraska will face off in a Big Ten battle at noon ET at Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium. Neither Wisconsin nor Nebraska have been able to muster enough firepower offensively in their last games, so decide defensively in this game.
Wisconsin lost 24-10 to the Iowa Hawkeyes last week. Neither had an outstanding offensive game for Wisconsin, but they got one touchdown from QB Graeme Mertz. At the top of the highlights reel was Mertz’s 51-yard TD bomb that WRed Keontez Lewis in the second quarter.
Their defensive team accumulated six sacks, losing 42 yards. Up front was LB Nick Herbig and his three sacks. Herbig has 11 sacks this season.
Meanwhile, the Cornhuskers found themselves reluctantly the recipients of a 34-3 bad stomach hit against the Michigan Wolverines last week. Nebraska was down 24-3 at the end of the third quarter, which was too much to recover from. One thing holding Nebraska back was the mediocre performance of RB Anthony Grant, who didn’t have the best game: he rushed for 22 yards on 11 carries.
Wisconsin is the favorite in this matchup with an expected lead of 10 points. They have consistently made money against the spread when favored (5-2), so they are worth betting on quickly.
These two teams will no doubt fight tooth and nail to get back into the winning column after last week’s losses. Double-check which unit can make it to the win column.
