Taylor and Cephus a huge part of Badgers offense

Adidas  Nebraska

Either the Huskers would pull off an upset and emerge as legit contenders in the Big Ten West, or they'd lose and be left trying to salvage whatever was left of their 2017 season. His 249-yard night was the third most yards Nebraska had given up to a single player in school history. Seldom have the games had a direct bearing on the division race. On the first play of the drive, Hornibrook threw what may have been his least thought-out pass attempt of the year which landed directly in Nebraska CB Aaron William's arms. First place in the division was at stake. In fact, it was huge.

The game is tied at 17-17 in the third quarter. He said while there were a couple of big runs, there were too many for no gain.

The Wisconsin Badgers look for a 6-0 record to remain in the thick of the Big Ten title conversation. With Wilbon presumably ready to roll this week, will NU go back to a one-two punch with him and Ozigbo? In the second half, Wisconsin asserted its physical dominance along both lines of scrimmage, something that has earmarked the series since it resumed in 2011.

Wisconsin finished with 466 total yards, while Nebraska finished with 381.

Nebraska tied the game in the third quarter, but the Husker offense couldn't muster any second half points in a 38-17 loss to Wisconsin.

For the most part Lee was making plays - zinging completions into tight coverage in the first half. Hornibrook eventually found Quintez Cephus for a 5-yard touchdown pass. Wisconsin doesn't play sexy football, they play winning football. Like I said, just talking with the linemen seeing if our run fits. "We made a few plays, but they gave us no chance to have continuity". "It was a great finish".

Nebraska desperately needs an effort from its offensive line like what it showed in the first half vs. the Badgers, expect there can't be another second-half let down this time around.

"But you know, you're always looking to make a play. That's something we've got to be able to do week in and week out".


Even a penalty-prone Badger team had Nebraska playing from behind seemingly from the opening drive.

Whether it was staying true to its identity or because they were inspired by the occasion, No. 9 Wisconsin aped the 1997 Cornhuskers' strengths - physical running game, strong defense - in answering its latest challenge.

The Huskers had just four possessions after halftime as Wisconsin ran out the clock with one punishing drive after another. On offense, Wisconsin is putting up 40.8 points and 459.8 yards per game.

The Badgers have been slow starters offensively in every game and they were again Saturday night. Taylor rattled off runs of 7, 15 and 10 yards to flip the field.

Another occasional problem cropped up in the second half. What was different? The Badgers are not Northern Illinois, Rutgers and Illinois. That's why this one is so important.

Deiter, who injured the ankle at BYU three weeks ago, said he's seen noticeable improvement from Van Lanen since the season began.

"I thought we executed up front", Badgers coach Paul Chryst said. "We'll take that with us and move forward, knowing we can do that in any scenario".
