OMAHA, Neb. — After rallying late to win at Northwestern, Nebraska will play for a share of the Big Ten Legends Division lead when Michigan visits Lincoln this Saturday night.
The Cornhuskers (5-2, 2-1) beat the Wildcats 29-28 Saturday thanks to Taylor Martinez's big fourth quarter and despite three turnovers and eight penalties.
So it's one down and five to go for the Huskers to meet coach Bo Pelini's challenge — issued after a 25-point loss at Ohio State two weeks ago — to win their final six regular-season games and make it to the Big Ten championship game.
Michigan (5-2, 3-0) will head to Nebraska on a three-game win streak after a 12-10 victory over Michigan State.
Last year the Wolverines capitalized on three Nebraska turnovers to win 45-17 in Ann Arbor.
