The Huskers go for their 10th straight win tonight, and if they get it, they'll be only the second team in school history to obtain a double-digit win streak AND they'll stay in the hunt for potentially sharing the Big Ten title with Penn State.

It seems like Wisconsin has owned Nebraska lately - the loss of the Big Ten Championship, and then a sweep of the men's basketball team (including the horror that was Tuesday night), but tonight Nebraska could get a level of payback.
