The B1G did Nebraska no favors in its first conference season. After an ugly loss in Madison the week before, Nebraska fell behind in Lincoln to Ohio State 27-6 with 12:46 left in the third quarter. Nebraska fans, still a little numb from the 48-17 pasting laid on by Wisconsin the week before, looked lost and completely overmatched in its new conference home. The Wisconsin fans "Big Ten football" taunts from the week before began to ring louder.
But then Nebraska knocked out Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, which cued a 21-point comeback, the largest in school history. Nebraska salvaged the game and, in doing so, its credibility in its new conference home.
