At the Huskers last home game, a late-game score pushed Wisconsin to a 15-14 victory over Nebraska, after the Badgers punched in a one-yard rushing touchdown with 35 seconds left. It was the third score of the half for Wisconsin who scored all 15 points in the 2nd half after being shutout in the first half. It hurts to lose again, especially by only 1 point!
Nebraska now heads to Iowa City for its final game of the 2022 season as they face the Hawkeyes for the team’s annual “Black Friday” matchup. Kickoff time is set for 1 p.m. AZ time with TV coverage being provided by the Big Ten Network.
Nebraska heads into the contest with a 3-8 overall record and a 2-6 mark in Big Ten play. The Huskers suffered another close setback on Saturday, when Wisconsin escaped Lincoln with a 15-14 victory. Nebraska held a 14-3 edge heading into the final quarter, but the Badgers engineered two fourth-quarter touchdown drives for the victory. The loss marked Nebraska’s fifth loss this season by seven or fewer points, including four in Big Ten play.
Iowa comes into the contest playing its best football of the 2022 season. The Hawkeyes have won four straight games to put themselves into position for a second straight Big Ten West Division crown and a trip to the Big Ten Championship game. Iowa stands at 7-4 overall and 5-3 in Big Ten play, and a victory on Friday will clinch the Hawkeyes a spot in the conference title game in Indianapolis on Dec. 3.
