14 Nov Expert Jonathan Cartu Writes – Wisconsin vs. Nebraska odds, spread: 2019 college football…
A Big Ten battle is on tap between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Wisconsin Badgers at noon ET on Saturday at Tom Osborne Field at Memorial Stadium. Nebraska is 4-5 overall and 3-2 at home, while Wisconsin is 7-2 overall and 1-2 on the road. It’s been a Wisconsin-dominated rivalry since Nebraska joined the conference, with the Cornhuskers losing seven of eight and failing to cover in five of those eight head-to-head meetings. However, Nebraska has covered two of its last three meetings with Wisconsin despite losing all three of those games outright. The Badgers are favored by 14.5 points in the latest Nebraska vs. Wisconsin odds, while the over-under is set at 51.

Nebraska didn’t finish too far behind, but still fell 31-27 to Purdue two weeks ago. The Cornhuskers’ defense allowed what had been a stagnant Purdue passing attack to put up 304 yards through the air and Nebraska has now given up 655 yards passing in its last two games. However, Scott Frost is hoping a week off will help his secondary recover and that extra week to repair should help starting quarterback Adrian Martinez as well. Martinez had a strong performance against Wisconsin a season ago, passing for 384 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while rushing for 57 yards and a score.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last week Wisconsin sidestepped Iowa for a 24-22 win. Running back Jonathan Taylor had a stellar game for Wisconsin as he picked up 250 yards on the ground on 31 carries. Taylor has now rushed for 1,259 yards on the season and 5,430 yards in his career. His 19 touchdowns are a career high already and he’s scored 48 times overall in three seasons at Wisconsin. Nebraska will have to load the box and do everything it can to slow Taylor down and force quarterback Jack Coan to attack down the field.
