Nebraska at Wisconsin - Football Highlights

(AP) Russell Wilson gave Nebraska a harsh welcome to the Big Ten, throwing for two touchdowns and running for another in No. 7 Wisconsin’s 48-17 rout of the eighth-ranked Cornhuskers at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday night. Montee Ball ran for 151 yards and four touchdowns for the Badgers (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten). But Wilson was the main attraction for a prime-time television audience as Wisconsin overcame a slow start to solidify its status as the class of the conference. Taylor Martinez threw three interceptions for the Huskers (4-1, 0-1), who showed they weren’t quite ready for the best of the Big Ten. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.
