Big Ten Championship Game - Lucas Oil Stadium
Here it is - what you've been waiting for - another shot at a conference championship and a trip to a BCS bowl.
I don't have to say much about what this game means for Husker fans. This has been an amazing season so far. The defensive letdowns at UCLA and Ohio State had us all wondering whether this team was capable of making a decent bowl game. All the comebacks left us on the edges of our seats, aged, and jaw-dropped sometimes staring at the TV in disbelief.
But here we are, the team's goals still intact - win the Big Ten and head to the Rose Bowl against Stanford.
