College Football Week 14: #14 Nebraska Vs. Wisconsin
|It wasn’t as easy as most expected it would be, but Bo Pelini’s squad took care of business against Iowa and will now play for a shot to represent the Big Ten in Pasadena in just its second season in the league.||Coaching||The Badgers are here by default, as Ohio State and Penn State are both ineligible. That doesn’t change the fact that Wisconsin is one win away from a Rose Bowl appearance.|
|It wasn’t pretty against the Hawkeyes last week—263 yards of offense—but Nebraska got enough on the ground to grind out the victory. They put up 440 yards against Wisconsin in their first meeting.||Offense||The Badgers haven’t done much against the better defenses in the conference; against Nebraska earlier this season, they looked good in the first half but finished with fewer than 300 yards.|
|Nebraska’s D is ranked 12th in the country in yards per play and absolutely shut down Iowa.||Defense||This unit is just a notch below Nebraska’s, and really struggled to contain Taylor Martinez in the second half in their earlier matchup with the Cornhuskers.|
|Nebraska muffed a punt last week. The play was indicative of the Cornhuskers’ horrible special teams play this season.||Special Teams||Wisconsin missed a 44-yard field goal in overtime last week that gave Penn State the victory, but overall its special teams has been average.|
