The votes are in, and our viewers selected Michigan’s victory over Nebraska as our Big Ten Football Game of the Week. Catch the game again at 8 p.m. ET. The Wolverines cruised to victory in this one, thanks in large part to Denard Robinson and a stout defensive effort. The Michigan quarterback accounted for four touchdowns to bust out of a recent funk, and the defense limited the Huskers to 260 total yards. Don’t miss the game again tonight.
