A clear difference between dreams and reality is taking place with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. What was supposed to be a magical bet on College Football season has turned into a hellish nightmare.

But since the opening game being cancelled right after it kicked off everything has gone wrong for Nebraska. In the same way they have been exposed as being totally outmanned for Big Ten competition.

Nebraska vs. Wisconsin TV Coverage: Big Ten Network
Nebraska limps into Madison with a record of 0-4 straight up. Additionally, they have yet to earn a bet on College Football cover. Things have gone from bad to worse for the Huskers. On the whole their 42-28 home loss to Purdue last week was stunning. Owing to the loss was Nebraska’s utter helplessness on defense. It follows that Frost inherited a mess upon taking over. Instead it has been proven to be far worse. Previous coach Mike Riley left behind an empty cupboard of soft players. In view of the country club culture Frost needs time to correct it.
Wisconsin has a sportsbook record of 3-1 straight up but 1-3 against the spread. The Badgers are coming off a bye that followed a gutsy 28-17 comeback win at Iowa. In spite of trailing late in the fourth quarter in a hostile setting the Badgers found a way. Following their bad home loss to BYU in week three it was an impressive triumph. Wisconsin is now in the Big Ten West Division driver seat. Fashion the Badger defense that ranks 10th nationally for points allowed. Simultaneously Nebraska ranks 112th in the country for scoring offense.
Stats to Consider
Another matchup problem is Nebraska’s 119th ranked scoring defense. While Wisconsin’s offense is not high tech it is physical. For one thing the Badgers rank eighth in the nation for rushing offense. Counter to that is a Nebraska defense that was rendered helpless by Purdue last week. Admittedly Nebraska had their old blueprint stolen by Wisconsin. Encompassing that is the Badgers big bruising physical ways. Alternatively, once powerful Nebraska is a powder puff crew.
Team vs. Team
Extending this matchup, Wisconsin has paid in five of their last seven against Nebraska. Two of the last three meetings have gone under the total. Furthermore, Wisconsin has paid in two of their last three at home against the Huskers. Equally important is Nebraska’s 3-4 mark against the spread as a road dog.
Matchup to Watch
Indeed, this Bet on College Football matchup could get ugly fast. In the first place Wisconsin is infinitely tougher than Nebraska. Following this is the fact that the Badgers are also far more talented. Above all this will be a lesson on how much work Frost has in front of him. It will take years for Nebraska to reach Wisconsin’s level.

In sum the Badgers can name the score in this one. Besides that, their last game at Camp Randall Stadium was a loss. Subsequently they should be mean and nasty Saturday night.
