Many in Husker nation saw the Wisconsin game as a chance to make a national statement. Even if Nebraska lost, it could show it's ready to tango with the best in the country. Instead, it was shell-shocked on a national stage. The vaunted Blackshirts were supposed to be great, and instead they have been a disappointment, ranking in the middle of the country.

The Cornhuskers get the Ohio State Buckeyes at home for the first Big Ten game at Memorial Stadium. During the preseason, this was pegged as a top-10 matchup, with both teams going undefeated. However only Nebraska is ranked with one loss and Ohio State has two losses. This is still a big matchup, featuring two of the premier programs in the country.
