The Nebraska offense will need to raise its level of play even more this week if the Huskers hope to remain unbeaten in the Big Ten. Ninth ranked Wisconsin features a defense that is fourth ranked nationally in a 4-0 start.
“They are in the top two or three in about everything in our conference and a lot of the stuff in the top ten nationally”, said Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf. “They will be the best defense that we have faced.”
Langsdorf says the Huskers will need to be careful in the passing game not to force the ball downfield. The Badgers rank in the top five in the country in sacks and have registered seven interceptions.
Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst says the Badger defense will be challenged by a Nebraska offense led by quarterback Tanner Lee.
“I think we will be tested a little bit differently this week than maybe we have to this point in the season”, said Chryst. “I think he is a good quarterback. He is continuing to get more comfortable in the system. He knows it and brings a lot to it.”
