Huskers Give Wisconsin Easy Win
Wisconsin 70 Nebraska 31
Indianapolis, IN - The Huskers could not stop Montee Ball. He led the Badgers to the 70-31 win over Nebraska, claiming the Big Ten Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Badgers rushed for 539 yards, the most ever given up by a Nebraska team. Ball scored three touchdowns and ran for 201 yards. Wisconsin now goes to the Rose Bowl for the third year in a row.
"I apologize to everybody associated with Nebraska football and how we coached, how we played, it's not acceptable," said Husker head coach Bo Pelini after the game. "We came unglued, I wish I had the answer, but I don't." Pelini compared the Huskers' performance to a leaking boat.
At DJ's Dugout in Omaha, fans started leaving at halftime. "I don't know where they are in this game. They're not thinking. They're not thinking clearly," said one fan. Another said Nebraska should have seen Wisconsin coming, after losing to the Huskers earlier this seaon.
Bowl match-ups are expected tomorrow.
