When ABC signed up for this game, they probably thought that they were getting a pair of Top 10 teams that were going to be slugging it out in a potential preview of the Big Ten Championship Game. Now, it’s going to be more of an iffy proposition, as neither team might be in the Big Ten Championship and only the winner of the game will be ranked in the Top 25 when this week is said and done with. Wisky has been a train wreck this year, but we just aren’t all that sure that Nebraska is any less of a wreck in the long run. QB Taylor Martinez had no chance to get the ball in the end zone all that much last year in Camp Randall in a game that ended in a 31-point blowout. It might be payback time, but to ask this Nebraska team to cover a spread this big against a team that still isn’t all that far removed from last year’s Rose Bowl effort. The Badgers couldn’t have fallen this far this fast.
Wisconsin @ Nebraska Pick: Wisconsin +11.5
Wisconsin @ Nebraska Score Prediction: Nebraska 30 – Wisconsin 20
