Big Ten Football Championship Week Preview My Record:    67-29……69.7% Nebraska (10-2, 7-1)  vs Wisconsin (7-5, 4-4)      8:17pm      FOX:     When they met back in late September, the Badgers had built a 17 point lead on the Corn in Lincoln and Taylor Martinez found a way to get his team the W….one of many come-from-behind victories for the Corn in 2012…I (among many others) have always said it is tough to beat a team twice in the same season…and the Badgers will be trying to prevent a team from doing so to them for the second straight year in the Big Ten title game….in 2011, The Spartans beat Wisconsin in East Lansing but then the Badgers won in Indianapolis…Can the Huskers beat the Badgers twice?….I don’t know…it seems like the Montee’ Ball show is in full effect right now…but how can a suspect Badger D stop the sometimes unstoppable Corn offense….my deciding factor is this…Brett Bielema has yet to cost his team a game in 2012 with his unbelievably bad clock management tendencies.  I like Bielema to give this one to the Corn…Nebraska wins 33-28.
