LINCOLN, NEB.— On Wednesday afternoon, a full four days before their game against Nebraska was scheduled to kickoff, the Wisconsin Badgers extended their winning streak against the Cornhuskers to eight years. The last time Nebraska beat Wisconsin was back in 2012 and they only won by a field goal and, come on, later that same year the Badgers pantsed the Huskers in the B1G Title game, 70-31.
Head coach Paul Chryst and athletic director Barry Alvarez both made it extremely clear during a press conference on Wednesday that the team would not be traveling to Lincoln for the game because it was going to be a “no contest” and we at B5Q are inclined to agree with them.
Our research team looked it up and four days is the earliest one team has not lost to another team in college football history. Redshirt freshman QB Graham Mertz continues to set records and lead the Badgers confidently into the future.
Nebraska, who whined and complained all offseason, has gotten their wish of playing Big Ten football this year in the first two weeks of the season. First, they got stomped by Ohio State in Columbus and then their losing streak to Wisconsin kept creeping closer to a decade. Be careful what you wish for, I suppose.
Wisconsin and Nebraska are scheduled to play again in 2021 and hopefully the Huskers can at least make it to kickoff before taking an L.
