The Nebraska defense knows what is coming it is just a matter of stopping it. The Huskers prepare to face a Wisconsin team that wants to run the ball to set up play action passes.
The Badgers are averaging 168 yards on the ground per game.
“Seventy percent of the time they run one play and they do it well”, said Husker defensive coordinator Mark Banker. “They run a power scheme with double teams and kick outs. They want to run straight downhill at you, out physical you and get you leaning downhill and come back with big play action.”
It will be strength versus strength as the Husker defense is only giving up 85 yards on the ground per game.
“We’re going to find out how good we are at stopping the run”, said Husker linebacker Chris Weber. “With Wisconsin you are going to find that out real quick. We have got to continue to do the things that have made us successful in the past weeks stopping the run.”
