Why Wisconsin Will Win

Jonathan Taylor continues to be Jonathan Taylor.

He was held in check at times over the previous few weeks, and then he ripped apart a brick wall of an Iowa defense for a season-high 250 yards on 31 carries. The team leaned on its star, and he came up large.

Nebraska’s run defense isn’t miserable, but when teams try to pound away, they don’t have any sort of a problem – Illinois, Minnesota and Ohio State combined for over 900 yards on the ground – and Wisconsin will be more than happy to blast away from the start.

There’s a chance Nebraska never has the ball.

The Huskers try to move with a good tempo and great pace, and they also stall too often and get off the field right away. They’re 113th in the nation in time of possession – keeping the ball for just over 27 minutes per game.

Wisconsin is No. 1 in the nation in time of possession, keeping it for almost 37 minutes per outing. But …

Why Nebraska Will Win

Wisconsin had the ball for over 41 minutes against Illinois, and lost.

The Badger defense might be incredible overall, but it allowed more than 100 rushing yards or more twice – and lost both games.

Nebraska ran for 98 yards against South Alabama in the opener, and ripped off 128 yards or more against everyone else.

Wisconsin has been a killer at home, but lost on the road to Illinois and Ohio State in two of its last three games, and it struggled to put away Iowa at home last week.

It’s possible to hit the Badger secondary with big plays. Iowa got back into the game through the air, Michigan bombed away a bit in its loss, and when Ohio State tried to throw, it didn’t have a problem.

The Nebraska offense might not be steady, but the passing game has been working just fine lately. Expect a few home runs hit by Adrian Martinez, but …

What’s Going To Happen

How good has Jonathan Taylor been against Nebraska? In two games, he’s been able to crank out 470 yards and five touchdowns.

The Wisconsin defense will have a few meltdowns against a Nebraska offense that has just enough pop to be a wee bit of a concern, but Taylor will go off, and QB Jack Coan will hit third down throw after third down throw.
