(WOWT) - Yet another loss by single digits, the Huskers had a chance trailing 35-28 in the final 30 seconds deep in Wisconsin territory, but Adrian Martinez’s pass to Xavier Betts fell incomplete. There was a lot of contact, probably enough to warrant a flag but the officials let it go, Scott Frost was very mad, the Badgers won by seven.

This was back and forth, Wisconsin scored first, then Nebraska and that’s how it went for the majority of the game. The difference was a fourth quarter go ahead touchdown by Braelon Allen with 3:50 to go, the Huskers did not answer that one. It broke a 28-28 tie.

Austin Allen was great catching seven passes for 143 yards. Samori Toure also had seven catches for 113 yards, he also had a touchdown catch. On the ground, Martinez, Marvin Scott II and Markese Stepp each scored touchdowns.

452 yards of offense is impressive versus the Badgers but ultimately not enough. Nebraska will wrap up the season Friday against Iowa, a team that beat Illinois 33-23.
