ESPN College GameDay is coming to Madison this week, according to a recent tweet from the show's Twitter account. The decision should come as no surprise, considering No. 7 Wisconsin hosts No. 8 Nebraska in the Huskers' first Big Ten game Saturday. Oh, and the game will be played under the lights, too. We all remember the last time Wisconsin hosted a high-profile night game, right? The result was a commanding 31-18 victory over then-No. 1 Ohio State. Madison was going to be a an electric place either way, but now it will be an even bigger event.
The Badgers and Huskers both bring 4-0 records into the highly anticipated game. Each team boasts a prolific offense, with Wisconsin averaging 48.5 points per game and Nebraska putting up 42.8, so a shootout could be in store. Check out the latest AP and Coaches' polls.
