Big Ten Championship Game Open Thread

Nebraska-Wisconsin. 8:00PM EST on FOX. Gus Johnson and Charles Davis are calling the game.

Various sources have the line in favor of Nebraska by 3. If Nebraska wins, Michigan is all but assured the Capital One Citrus Bowl against A&M (likely) or Georgia, while the conversation is a bit more complicated if Wisconsin wins.

Title game will never garner a lot of attention until it's UM vs Ohio. Until then, it will be like tonight, half empty, and nobody interested outside of the Midwest.

God, I would love to some of that counter slot motion and runs with Norfleet to the edge in the coming years.

But who am I kidding. I'm sure we'll see Norfleet futilely running straight into an NT instead.

yup....this is the big ten..a 7-5 team who backed their way into the title game on a 2 game losing streak is smashing the 10 win team who owned their division. Sigh....of course no one is there to watch it.

Bret Bielema nearly broke his face with his enthusiasm there, but in any event, Nebraska just  does not have an answer for Wisconsin loading the line and then enveloping most of the defense. It sort of looks like particle annihilation, but without the violent energy release. 35-10 Wisconsin.

...and wow, Martinez fumbles and Wisconsin gets it back. Taylor is left on the sidelines wondering what could have transpired and Pelini is undoubtedly wondering if the halftime speech doesn't involve "hold onto the damn ball".

Seeing Nebreska get hammered is great.  K-State is also looking to squander away another BCS bid.  I assume no BCS bowl would take a team on a 2 game losing streak??
