Nebraska has made a habit of rallying from a halftime deficit and dominating the fourth quarter. Husker coach Mike Riley says it will take a complete effort to win at 11th ranked Wisconsin. Nebraska will take a 7-0 record into Camp Randall Stadium and with a victory would take command of the Big Ten West Division race.
“It is going to be one of those competitive games and it is probably the best football team we have played so far this year”, said Riley. “Especially offensively I think our key will be playing more consistently.”
That won’t be easy against a Wisconsin defense that ranks second in the Big Ten and only yielded three field goals in a 17-9 victory at Iowa.
Nebraska has won at Northwestern and at Indiana but Camp Randall will be the first time the Husker offense has operated in a hostile atmosphere.
“It is going to be loud and we have got to be sure that we are able to communicate out wide and up front”, said Husker quarterback Tommy Armstrong. “It is going to be a great atmosphere and this team actually needs something like that. We are ready for it.”
