Nebraska opens first Big 10 season with Wisconsin


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Nebraska's first game in the Big Ten is one of the Wisconsin's biggest games in history.

The seventh-ranked Badgers (4-0) haven't hosted a game between top 10 opponents since 1962. That changes Saturday night when they take on the eighth-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) at Camp Randall Stadium.

Both teams have a lot of similarities. They like to use their running attacks to set up play-action passing and both have dual threat quarterbacks.

Nebraska I-back Rex Burkhead says the small things will determine the outcome, and safety Austin Cassidy says he can't wait to see what the Big Ten and the atmosphere in Madison is like.
