The lead in the Big Ten's Legends Division will be on the line when the revitalized Michigan Wolverines visit Lincoln, Neb., to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a prime-time conference showdown. Since Wisconsin's all but locked up their division, this game could be for a shot at the Rose Bowl.
With Michigan unbeaten in conference and Nebraska boasting a 2-1 conference record, both teams will be looking to grab the reigns of the division and make their way toward a berth in the Big Ten Championship Game. Nebraska comes into the meeting fresh from a one-point victory over the Northwestern Wildcats, where quarterback Taylor Martinez threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns in the Cornhuskers come-from-behind victory.
After starting the season 2-2, with losses to the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Wolverines have reeled off three straight conference victories, including last week's defensive triumph over in-state rival Michigan State. With quarterback Denard Robinson unable to break through for a touchdown, Michigan kickers Matt Wile and Brendan Gibbons combined for four field goals to give the Wolverines a 12-10 victory.
Game time, TV channel: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN2
Point spread: Nebraska is a two-point favorite at home.
