The Road to the Big Ten Championship: Nebraska at Northwestern

October 19, 2012


This weekend highlights a Legends Division match-up between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Northwestern Wildcats. During a season that has shown pretty much anything can happen in the Big Ten Conference there is no guarantee for any specific team to make it to the Title game yet.

I am favoring Nebraska in this game but giving no guarantee for their victory as they lost to Northwestern last year at home. Nebraska was expected to be a dominant program when they entered the Big Ten Conference last year but they failed to do so. This year they are not doing a lot to try and prove that they are, struggling against Wisconsin but getting the win and then losing badly to Ohio State on the road. The Huskers still have the opportunity to go to the Big Ten Championship but Northwestern wants to take them out of the running.

Look for this game to be a good competition. I expect that both teams will go all out for the win but there may be the chance that one of them will find a weak point and expose it to build a comfortable lead. If you’re a Big Ten fan then this is a game that you don’t want to miss.

    I feel the same way, whoever wins the Nebraska Michigan game will probably go to the Title Game. If Northwestern had been able to beat Nebraska it would have given them a shot at going but I think with their loss they also lost their window of opportunity. The Nebraska Michigan game should be a good one to watch too.

    This was a great game and basically a home game for Nebraska, Ryan Field was 80% Red. Northwestern once again couldn’t hold a 4th quarter lead and let this one slip away. Next week is HUGE for Nebraska with Michigan coming to Lincoln, should decide who wins the Legends Division.
