Nebraska Vs. Wisconsin Final: Russell Wilson And Badgers Pound Nebraska 48-17

It was was supposed to be a premier prime time match up between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Wisconsin Badgers wound up being a display of just how good Wisconsin is. Nebraska got out to a 14-7 lead, but after that it was all Wisconsin and all Russell Wilson everything, beating Nebraska 48-17. Wilson finished the night with 255 yards and 2 touchdowns in the air, but also tacked on 32 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground. Badgers running back Montee Ball went off for 151 yards on 30 carries and 4 rushing touchdowns.

Nebraska was handled in the trenches by Wisconsin. Taylor Martinez had a rough night, completing just 11 of 22 passes for 176 yards and 3 interceptions. Martinez also ran the ball 20 times for just 60 yards and a touchdown. The Badgers held Nebraska to just 3.3 yards per carry on the ground and virtually nothing through the air. The Cornhuskers just couldn't get anything going offensively and couldn't get Wisconsin off the field.

Nebraska Vs. Wisconsin Score: Badgers Enter Halftime With 27-14 Lead Over Huskers

The Wisconsin Badgers are surely hoping that missed extra point won't come back to haunt them when the clock reaches zero in the fourth quarter. But at halftime, the Badgers lead the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 27-14.

The Badgers had been losing, 14-7, in the second quarter when Russell Wilson directed a long drive down the field. Montee Ball put the ball in the end zone for his second score of the game, but the extra point was blocked. Wilson directed another scoring drive at the end of the second quarter to put Wisconsin in the lead. He found Jared Abbrederis in the end zone for a 36-yard touchdown and the 20-14 lead.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez threw an interception on the ensuing drive, which Russell Wilson turned into a 46-yard touchdown pass to Nick Toon. Wilson put enough touch on the ball to keep it ahead of several Nebraska defenders but also in position for Toon to make the catch.

Nebraska kicker Brett Maher missed a 50-yard field goal at the end of the quarter.

Nebraska Vs. Wisconsin Score: Badgers Keep Answering Huskers, But Losing, 14-13, In 2nd Quarter

The Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Wisconsin Badgers seem determined to play a shootout in Madison on Saturday night. Wisconsin has answered back each time Nebraska has scored, but the Cornhuskers lead by one, 14-13.

After Montee Ball scored for the Badgers, Nebraska started its next drive on its own 26 yard line. A false start penalty and a holding flag pushed Nebraska back to its own 15 yard line, but Taylor Martinez found Quincy Enunwa for a 29-yard gain before the end of the first quarter. At the start of the second quarter, Martinez had an 11-yard run and a couple of passes, including a 28-yarder to Ben Cotton. That set up a one-yard touchdown run by Rex Burkhead.

However, the Badgers answered back on its next drive. Russell Wilson found Nick Toon on a leaping catch for 38 yards and then hooked up with Jared Abbrederis for a 14-yard gain. Wilson appeared to have a 22-yard touchdown run, but a holding call brought it back. Instead, Wilson hit Jacob Pedersen for a 28-yard gain. Montee Ball eventually found his way into the end zone for his second touchdown. However, a blocked extra point has the Badgers down, 14-13.

Nebraska Vs. Wisconsin Update: Taylor Martinez, Montee Ball Score For 7-7 Tie

The Nebraska Cornhuskers' first official Big 10 game has them tied at seven with the Wisconsin Badgers in the first quarter. Quarterback Taylor Martinez ran the ball in from the half-yard line on an option-look play. On the play before Martinez's touchdown run, it appeared that he had gotten in the end zone, as the officials called it that way on the field. However, replay showed that his knee was down before the ball broke the goal line.

Martinez has already rushed the ball eight times for 19 yards. His Wisconsin counterpart, Russell Wilson, didn't score a touchdown on his second drive, but his 21-yard run set up Montee Ball for his 10th rushing touchdown of the season. That score capped a 91-yard drive.

On his first drive, Wilson was sacked for the first time this season, losing nine yards. He also demonstrated why he has escaped so many sacks. He dodged pressure and was able to get a 21-yard pass off to Jared Abbrederis. Later on, though,Abbrederis, fumbled a punt return and gave the ball back to the Cornhuskers, setting up the eventual Nebraska touchdown.

Wisconsin Vs. Nebraska: Badgers Blowout Possible If Huskers' Defense Holds To Form

Wisconsin Badgers' Defensive End David Gilbert Out 6-8 Weeks

In some bad news for the Wisconsin Badgers the night before their match up with the Nebraska Corn Husker, Badgers defensive end David Gilbert will be out six to eight weeks with a broken foot. Tom Mulhern of Madison.com broke the surprising news late last night. The news came as a surprise because Wisconsin head coach Brett Bielema didn't mention Gilbert at all  in his last media session on Thursday afternoon.

Wisconsin is already without starting cornerback Devin Smith for the year, as well as the possibility of starting safety Shelton Johnson missing today's game against Nebraska. Losing another starter on defense will definitely hurt for this game, but also in the long term as Wisconsin gets into the meat of their Big 10 schedule. Gilbert was the Badgers team leader in sacks on the season with three. Junior defensive end Brenden Kelly is expected to start in Gilbert's absence.
