Taylor's rushing leads No. 9 Badgers past Cornhuskers

Nebraska has improved to 3-2 on the season and 2-0 in the Big Ten with a 28-6 win at IL last week.

Lee has tossed 11 touchdowns and been intercepted 10 times. "I think for a guy that would've played more runner and DB in high school and is a redshirt freshman, he doesn't blink, he's a real competitor". We kind of pride ourselves on being the spark of the offense, the running back group. "That's something I think we got better on but like you see today, we need to improve and just continue to want to be better finishers and stronger finishers".

That's something Big Red fans have become all too familiar with. The Purdue Boilermakers ground game is averaging 136.2 yards per contest, and Tario Fuller leads the way with 261 yards and two touchdowns. In 2014 Gordon ran for a then-NCAA record 408 yards against the Huskers.

Though numerous games between the teams have been closely contested, the rivalry never took off in large part because Nebraska's program hasn't been as consistently competitive in the Big Ten as conference officials hoped when the once-proud Cornhuskers program came on board. Spielman has 20 receptions for 275 yards and a touchdown so far, and he is coming off season highs against Wisconsin with six catches for 79 yards. "We did a good job at keeping our focus knowing we were going to get back out there and try to make more plays". After an Aaron Williams pick-six, tied the game at 17 in the third quarter, Wisconsin rattled off the game's final 21 points.

As was the case all game long, Wisconsin took back the momentum on a 93-yard scoring drive that took more than five minutes off the clock to grab the lead at 24-17.

Switzerland is now cruising and further cemented their dominance in the group by thrashing Hungary 5-2. It's true that it was a fight, and we need to do better.

Nebraska's next drive ended with a fumble after a completion on a short completion from Lee to Morgan, and Wisconsin turned the mistake into points with a 10-play, 40-yard drive that ate up 6:15 and ended with a one-yard plunge by Bradrick Shaw with 2:40 left to extend the Badger margin to 38-17. Nebraska trails 10-7.

"We were getting engulfed, and they were actually making our secondary tackle by bouncing that ball on the corner actually using the wide receiver to block the safety", Riley said.

Nebraska, meanwhile, has reeled off two straight wins against Rutgers and Illinois after an embarrassing home loss to Northern Illinois in Week 3.

"We did a bunch of things in the offseason to focus on finishing", said running back Devine Izigbo, who had 112 yards on 23 carries but only 18 yards in the second half. Blough and Elijah Sindelar have combined for 13 touchdown passes and six interceptions this season. Instead, Nebraska would miss a 33-yard field goal attempt and would remain scoreless. He returned it 78 yards for the touchdown, on what was just the fifth play from scrimmage. Like I said, just talking with the linemen seeing if our run fits. "It was there and it was great execution". Badgers are on the scoreboard first 7-0.
