Among so many other reasons, the disparities in how Wisconsin and Nebraska appear to be trending makes Saturday's primetime matchup a fascinating one.
To provide a better look into Nebraska's season to date, we're looking at some of Corn Nation's recent pieces. Last Saturday, the Huskers beat down Idaho State, 73-7. As you'll remember, Wisconsin kinda sorta squeaked by UTEP, 37-26.
Despite the lopsided scoring, Taylor Martinez and backup Ron Kellogg III played to only a C+ grade, accord to Husker Mike. The running backs and wide receivers both fared much better, while as you'd expect from a one-score performance, the defense earned high marks.
Here's another interesting in-depth look at the thrashing. Sounds like Rex Burkhead had a pretty good game, while the offensive line was vulnerable to speed rushers.
Under the simple premise, "If there were a playoff this season, who makes it?" this series takes a broader look at how the college football landscape is shaping up.
