SB Nation's Huskers blog provides several great pieces on the Badgers' opponent this weekend.
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.
