Iowa's side seemingly regards the rivalry with a bit more oomph, although Nebraska's level has risen during Scott Frost's tenure as Husker head coach.
The Huskers threw haymakers but they also made far more mistakes than the buttoned-up Badgers in a 35-28 loss in Madison, Wis.
Junior quarterback Adrian Martinez appreciated his coach’s willingness to fight, but knew nothing would change. More on the non-PI, and other notes.
Nebraska football writer Parker Gabriel offers his extra points from the Husker football team's 35-28 loss to Wisconsin on Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium.
Erik Chinander on the Badgers' run game: “It’s just body blow, body blow, body blow, and then they throw a knockout punch and break the big one on you."
Just get to mid-November with a chance to win the division. If Nebraska can regularly manage that standard, it'll mean it's playing sound, hard-nosed football on a consistent basis.
