Michigan vs. Nebraska: Complete Game Preview
Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Now that the dreadful losing streak to Michigan State is over, the Wolverines can move on to the important task at hand. 

That, of course, is winning the Big Ten Championship. 

The next challenge begins Saturday night when Michigan travels to Nebraska to face the Cornhuskers. While Nebraska relatively new to the Big Ten, they're no strangers to winning conference crowns. 

As a member of the Big 12, 8, 7, 6 and Missouri Valley Conferences, Nebraska has accumulated 43 league champions, one more than Michigan has won in the Big Ten.

The Cornhuskers, with dual-threat quarterback Taylor Martinez doing his best to imitate Michigan's Denard Robinson, probably have the offense needed to win their first Big Ten crown. But it's been the defense, which has troubled head coach Bo Pelini.

In three Big Ten matchups, Big Red has allowed 118 points, including a whopping 63 to the Buckeyes. Michigan, who scored 47 on Nebraska a season ago, should have no trouble moving the ball on this group of Huskers.

USA Today's Danny Sheridan, however, has the Wolverines listed as 2.5-point road dogs, most likely recalling Michigan's poor performances in Dallas (Alabama) and Notre Dame.

Let's take a look at what might really happen in Lincoln.
