Series Record: Wisconsin hold the series advantage 7-4 on the strength of four straight victories over the Big Red. Believe it or not, the largest regular season margin of victory in the series belongs to Nebraska with a 37-0 win when Bob Devaney’s 1965 Huskers steamrolled the Badgers in Lincoln. (Of course, who could forget the 70-31 debacle in the Big Ten championship game?)

TV: The game will be televised on BTN with a familiar voice for Nebraskans in Kevin Kugler, Play-by-Play. Also on the crew are Matt Millen, Analyst and Lisa Byington, Sidelines. You can stream the game on BTN2Go with a login from your TV service provider.

Radio: Huskers sports radio network. The audio can also be streamed live for free at The crew will be: Greg Sharpe, Matt Davison, and Ben McLaughlin. It will also be simulcast on Sirius: 81 and XM: 81.

More streaming options: The official Huskers app is available on iTunes. The app is free but accessing live audio costs $4.99 (per season). The app is available for Android users for free but the live content requires an in-app purchase. I often use the TuneIn app for game audio.

Weather: At kickoff, the temperature will be 66 degrees with clear skies and light winds from the southwest at 6 mph.
