Wisconsin Badgers Video of the Day, 7/24: UW passes all over Nebraska in 1974

Prior to Wisconsin playing Nebraska in the Cornhuskers' 2011 inaugural Big Ten season, the teams met prior, facing off in September 1974 in Camp Randall Stadium. In front of a crowd of 73,000 people, the Badgers -- led by quarterback Gregg Bohlig -- outpassed No. 4 Nebraska, 242-47, and scored 14 fourth-quarter points to pull away, 21-20. Head coach John Jardine's squad finished with a 7-4 record. The victory over Nebraska, who went on to win the Sugar Bowl against Florida that same season, was UW's only one over a ranked opponent, as the Badgers lost to Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State, all of whom were ranked at the end of the 1974 season.
