The Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-7, 2-5) return to Memorial Stadium for the home season finale Saturday as the Wisconsin Badgers (5-5, 3-4) come to town. The Huskers were all but eliminated from bowl eligibility with a road loss last Saturday at Michigan, but the Badgers will hope to clinch bowl eligibility with a win in Lincoln.
Nebraska will honor 12 seniors before the Wisconsin game who are making their final appearance at Memorial Stadium on Saturday. In addition to the 12 players who will exhaust their eligibility this season, several other Huskers who may complete their college careers in 2022 will likely take part in Senior Day activities.
Nebraska will look to snap a four game losing streak on the season and also an eight-game losing streak to Wisconsin when the teams meet. Since joining the Big Ten, the Huskers have played the Badgers every season except in 2013 due to scheduling as opposite division members and again in 2020 due to COVID-19. The teams played twice in 2012 with UW defeating UNL in the rematch in Indianapolis for the 2012 Big Ten title game.
Overall, Nebraska trails Wisconsin 4-11 in the all-time series. As conference foes, the Huskers are 9-1 against the Badgers. Nebraska has lost by an average of 19.3 points in those nine losses, the largest margin of 39 points coming in the conference title game in 2012 in a 70-31 defeat.
Former Nebraska head coach Mike Riley was arguably the most competitive coach against Wisconsin, losing by an average margin of 9.7 points, including a 17-23 overtime loss at Wisconsin in 2016. However, Bo Pelini is the only coach to secure a win over Wisconsin in a 30-27 home matchup in 2012. His three losses were by an average margin of 35 points, though.
