08:19 AM ET 09.29 | One team will drop to 4-1 and perhaps out of the top 10 on Saturday when the No. 8 Cornhuskers travel to No. 7 Wisconsin, where a hostile environment awaits. It's only one factor among several. Kenny Bell thinks it's no factor at all. Nebraska has a handful of freshmen who handle the football on a regular basis. All told, the eighth-ranked Huskers (4-0) have a combined 10 freshmen and redshirt freshmen on their two-deep chart. Excuse the whippersnappers if they're a tad wide-eyed Saturday night at No. 7 Wisconsin, on national television (ABC), playing prominent roles as Nebraska plays its first Big Ten game. Excuse the lads if they make a few mistakes. It's only natural, right?

I'm sure most of the NEB players will be live texting the whole time anyway...

This looks to be a bad game for Nebraska. The defense has been spotty and Wisconsin's high powered offense is at home.

Yah, but the WISC build up may be way beyond how good the team really is too. Its not like NC State was some sort of powerhouse with Wilson as the QB.

But Wisky's supporting cast is vastly superior to NC State.

Nebraska is in trouble....I'll be shocked if they're within 20 at the end of this game...they've struggled against the Little Sisters of the Poor so far...Bo's going to be blowing a lot of gaskets on the sidelines this year

"Lads" only sounds okay when our Domer boys use it - otherwise it's creepy.

+10

We'll see how excited they are now that they've moved to the L&L Conference.

Pelini better get on some blood pressure meds . . .

Players better be keeping their tweets to a minimum.

#5 <DaJewz, Wisconsin is in the Leaders division, not the Legends.
Took me a while to keep them straight till I thought of the "G" in Legends as being the "g" in both of the Michigan schools. I know it is silly but so are the Division names. LOL

Nebraska will do fine in the overated Big 10. There are only a couple of good teams with the rest being mediocre and then you have Indiana, Minnesota, Purdue, Northwestern and Illinois who are generally bottom feeders.
