Bret Bielema B1G Pre-Championship Game Press Conference

The Journey 2012

Injuries are a key factor in any game, and this game is no different. Nebraska will miss the presence of tackle Baker Steinkuhler on the interior of the defensive line. The Huskers need Chase Rome—among others—to step up with Steinkuhler out. And center Justin Jackson is out. It will be Mark Pelini or Cole Pensick at center.

The Journey 2012

This Big Ten title game is about more than celebrating the culmination of the season and crowning a conference champ. This Big Ten title game is about validating a program—and validating a coach. I’m talking about Nebraska and Bo Pelini. That’s what’s at stake on Saturday night inside Lucas Oil Stadium—the “House the Peyton Manning Built.”

Dienhart: Scouting reports on Huskers, Badgers

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

The Big Ten title game is almost upon us, and who better to break down Nebraska and Wisconsin than coordinators from other Big Ten schools? I dialed up six Big Ten coordinators from both sides of the ball and talked off the record with the guys who watched film, prepared game plans and stared down each team on a Saturday this fall. I asked them for their frank, candid and unvarnished analysis of each team.

Act Two of the Big Ten title game is almost upon us, but it will be difficult to top last year’s 42-39 sprint that Wisconsin won over Michigan State. Still, Wisconsin and Nebraska will try. Like last year’s Badgers-Spartans game, this year’s Badgers-Huskers game is a rematch of a scintillating regular-season meeting.
