2012 Top 25 College Football Games of the Year
#4 Wisconsin Badgers @ Nebraska Cornhuskers

Wisconsin vs. Nebraska (-3)

Nebraska MascotLast year, the Big Ten ended up featuring five teams ranked in the Top 20 in the country. Two of those teams, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Wisconsin Badgers, were amongst the best, and they were both contenders for the Rose Bowl for most of the year. Of course, we know that it was Wisconsin that ended up going to Pasadena a campaign ago, while Nebraska was left out of all of the action after losing just three conference games. The Badgers are likely to waltz to the Big Ten Championship Game once again this year, but Nebraska is going to have a heck of a road to be able to get there. One of those tough games comes against this Wisconsin outfit, which will come to Lincoln for the first time ever to end the month of September. Join us for our Wisconsin @ Nebraska college football picks for what should be one of the best games of the year in the Big 10, and a game that could legitimately be a preview of what is to come down the road in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers Spread: Nebraska Cornhuskers -3

Those tricky Badgers did well last year to make it to the Rose Bowl, but we also have to remember that Nebraska came to Camp Randall, and the only two losses over the course of the season came against Michigan State and Ohio State. Both games came on the road. In fact, it has been quite some time since Wisconsin has won a legitimate road game of note, and this is going to be the first, and really quite possibly the only big time road test that this team has to face this year. QB Joe Brennan is definitely no Russell Wilson, but at least he is going to have the pleasure of having RB Montee Ball in the backfield to hand the rock to. The Heisman Trophy finalist from a year ago knows that this is the type of game in which he can make himself a lot of money, as he could be a first round draft pick this coming year in the NFL Draft. The defense has six returning starters but is very deep, and this unit will have to really buckle down to be able to shut down the Big Red offense.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers Past Games (Since 1995)
2011: Wisconsin 48 – Nebraska 17

The Cornhuskers are only going to go as far as QB Taylor Martinez takes them. Last year, getting just 17 points on the board in Camp Randall clearly didn’t cut it, especially knowing that he turned the ball over three times and completed just 50.0 percent of his passes in the effort. He is going to have to do a lot better job this year against this defense to have any chance whatsoever of winning this game. The Huskers don’t have a heck of a lot of big time playmakers on defense, but they do have a lot of experience coming back this year with eight returning starters. This unit was embarrassed last year in Madison, allowing 48 points in a game that was a romp from the second quarter on, and Head Coach Bo Pelini knows that this is the type of game that his squad has to win if it wants to contend to go to the Rose Bowl and play for a National Championship.

Wisconsin @ Nebraska Free Picks^^: We are a bit puzzled as to why Nebraska is really favored in this game. We think that it is clear that Wisconsin has the better of the two sides, and with a legitimate chance at the BCS National Championship potentially on the line, the Badgers just aren’t going to relent. Martinez hasn’t proven that he can win big games, as he just hasn’t played well in bowls and isn’t going to be one of the elite quarterbacks in a Big Ten where all of a sudden, quarterback play looks awfully good. Look for Ball to run all over the Nebraska defense in what will turn out to be another great victory for the Badgers.
