Pick of the Week: Badgers vs. Cornhuskers in Big Ten West Showdown
While Nebraska is off to a shaky 3-2 start, they still can end up unbeaten in conference play and in sole possession of first place in the Big Ten West with a victory at home over #9 ranked and unbeaten Wisconsin this Saturday night. The Huskers two losses were both within seven points and the Blackshirts have really tightened up their D in recent weeks. They’ll need it with Ohio State up next and Penn State on the horizon. Wisconsin has the easier schedule the rest of the way and a road victory here could pave the way for them to go unbeaten with just one really extra tough game at home vs Michigan down the stretch. This will be a dandy but I’m looking for Big Red to avenge their overtime loss last year to the Badgers this time around and bring The Freedom Trophy back to Lincoln. Nebraska 38, Wisconsin 34.
