Week 6 vs Nebraska

Sam Land

Under the direction of Frost, this program should start winning more games, likely as soon as this season. That being said, talent-wise the Huskers are still a couple seasons away from truly posing a threat to Wisconsin. Keep an eye on how Wisconsin’s corners handle their talented receivers and Frost’s high-powered spread offense, but the Badgers should still pull out a victory at home behind another big Jonathan Taylor performance after he torched Nebraska for over 200 yards last year.

Scott Frost will make strides in his first year with the Huskers, but this game will be a growing pain. The Badgers staunch linebacker core will bring the pain in this one. Jonathan Taylor will run the Nebraska defense down early but look for Taiwan Deal and Chris James to capitalize on the tired defense later in this one.

The Badgers welcome Scott Frost and the Cornhuskers to a hostile Camp Randall crowd in early October.  Unlike most, I am not sipping the Frost Kool-Aid going into this season.  I think he is a talented coach but I expect he is still a couple years away from making a significant impact in the Big Ten.  The Nebraska defense, which ranked 114th in rushing defense last year, will not be able to contain the Wisconsin backs.  Taylor and co. run for over 350 yards just like last year, but unlike last year this will not be a close game in the second half.  Andrew Van Ginkel and T.J. Edwards have huge days by overwhelming Nebraska’s inexperienced quarterbacks.

Scott Frost brings the newly-led Cornhuskers into Camp Randall but comes up with a disappointing result yet again.

The Big Ten opener for Wisconsin comes against the much-hyped, Frost-led Huskers. I have a feeling the Badgers might take this one personally given the recent smack talk from the Blackshirts. If the Badgers D limits the talented Stanley Morgan Jr., the Badgers should rout.

This game is a bit more dangerous than it seems. Nebraska has incredible talent on the offensive perimeter and the Badgers must hope their young defensive backs are seasoned enough to this point in the season to handle the challenge. Frost runs a very complex offense, but T.J. Edwards and D’Cota Dixon should be able to dissect it. The Husker defense won’t be able to stop Jonathan Taylor whatsoever.
