Here it is. After playing a variety of lower-tier Big Ten opponents over recent weeks, Wisconsin gets a shot at a season-defining win Saturday afternoon vs. Nebraska. After losing to Northwestern in early October, the Badgers have played their way back to No. 20 in the College Football Playoff rankings. Nebraska is No. 16, with only one loss on the season.

The two meet Saturday in Madison for Big Ten West positioning. A win gives Wisconsin as good a chance as anyone to take the division and reach the Big Ten championship game. Should Nebraska win, it'd have the upper leg with two games remaining.

Here's B5Q's Zach Wingrove in his Getting to know Nebraska preview from earlier this week:

The Cornhuskers are 8-1 on the season (4-1 in the Big Ten) and currently sit at No. 11 in this week's latest AP poll. Their lone loss of the season came in East Lansing on Oct. 4, when Michigan State blew a 27-3 fourth quarter lead, but managed to hold on and defeat Nebraska 27-22. Other than that loss, the Cornhuskers have had little trouble cruising through an incredibly weak schedule, with their only scare coming early in the second week of the season against McNeese State -- when the Huskers were bailed out by an incredible play by Ameer Abdullah late in the game (shown in the video below if you haven't seen it already).

Saturday's trip to Madison will be Nebraska's toughest remaining obstacle this season. The Cornhuskers will certainly be out for revenge after the 70-31 trouncing they suffered the last time they faced the Badgers in the 2012 Big Ten Championship. But before Nebraska attempts to end Wisconsin's four game winning streak and put themselves in the driver's seat in the Big Ten West division, here are three things to know about the Cornhuskers.
