Rovell’s Pick for Badgers vs. Cornhuskers

Bucky isn’t like the Badgers of the past. That offensive line isn’t making the same type of holes and it’s arguable that the always serviceable Wisconsin quarterback title is flimsy during some games with Graham Mertz.
Last week, the Badgers had an awful game against Iowa, a 24-10 loss in which Wisconsin tallied just 51 rushing yards.
But that’s also why the Badgers are just 10-point favorites, instead of 13, against Nebraska on Saturday.
With a lame duck coach and a likely six-game losing streak to end the season, the Cornhuskers have nothing to play for. Meanwhile, Wisconsin can still salvage a disappointing season with a bowl game. The return of Casey Thompson as Nebraska’s signal caller won’t make a difference and it’s easy to see Wisconsin opening up the running game and Braelon Allen rushing for over 100 yards.
