All-time Series: Nebraska leads 3-2

Last Meeting: Wisconsin won 21-20 Sept. 21, 1974 in Madison, Wis.

Well, the time is here. As far as I'm concerned, the season starts tonight. Wisconsin has looked great the first four weeks of the season, but it's time to prove it against a Top 10 team that the Badgers should beat.

The hype around Madison has been crazy today. There are a ton of Nebraska fans -- although not nearly as many as they advertised -- and that should make for a great atmosphere.

The good news for the Badgers is that they were in a similar situation not even a year ago against Ohio State and they executed to a tee. The difference is that this time Wisconsin is the favorite and the Cornhuskers will be looking to pull off the big upset.

We look forward to a great discussion tonight. It should be a lot of fun. As always, leave your comments, questions and predictions below!
