Nebraska did not expect a warm welcome to the Big Ten, so after the 48-17 rout by the Wisconsin Badgers they now know what to expect rest of the season. Early, it looked like Nebraska was ready to play, but that was just smoke and mirrors it seemed. Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson shredded the Cornhuskers defense with his feet and his arm. Nebraska really had no answers for Wilson all night long and the rout was on.
Taylor Martinez was suppose to help keep Nebraska in the game, but he struggled to hold onto the ball and threw three interceptions. When you are playing on the road those are mistakes that you just cannot make and win. This was not the way a Nebraska football team usually plays under Bo Pelini, but you have to give Wisconsin credit they came to play. Wisconsin is tough at home and they showed why they are a National Title contender once again.
Not all is lost for the Cornhuskers with this loss. They could win rest of there games and get to the Big Ten Championship against most likely Wisconsin. Unless they play better though the second possible match-up could be a rout as well.
