Huskers Fall to Badgers: Taylor Martinez produced his fifth 100-yard rushing effort of the year, including an electrifying 76-yard scramble for a TD, but Wisconsin controlled the action from start to finish in a 70-31 win for the Big Ten championship.
   The Badgers’ 539 rushing yards were the most ever allowed by a Husker defense, bettering Oklahoma’s 506 in 1956. UW’s 70 points tied for the second most ever allowed by Nebraska.

The unvarnished truth is that much of the six-game winning streak NU toted to Indy was coated in fool’s gold.”
