The Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-5, 3-4 Big Ten) travel to face the Wisconsin Badgers (5-5, 3-4 Big Ten) on Saturday, November 18 at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin.
This game holds added significance as both teams are currently in the midst of losing streaks, and the winner will become bowl eligible.
Live coverage will be part of NBC Sports’ B1G Saturday Night, starting at 7:00 p.m. ET (kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET) on NBC and Peacock.

With a win, Nebraska would avoid a third-straight loss and reach its first bowl since 2016.
The biggest question mark for the Cornhuskers entering Saturday’s matchup is who will be under center. While sophomore Heinrich Haarberg was seen — by head coach Matt Rhule at least — as the potential quarterback of the future just weeks ago, Haarberg left last week’s game against Maryland with an ankle sprain, and despite being cleared to return, was “labored” and benched in favor of junior Georgia Tech transfer Jeff Sims… who was then benched for sophomore Chubba Purdy (younger brother of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy).
Wisconsin is trying to avoid a fourth-straight loss and extend the longest active bowl streak in the Big Ten by making its 22nd straight bowl game.
The Badgers are in a similar predicament on offense, with starting quarterback Tanner Mordecai having returned last week from breaking his right (throwing) hand against Iowa in mid-October.
“Tanner is a tough dude,” head coach Luke Fickell said. “Whether it’s three weeks outside of surgery, I thought he did as good as he could do probably in a lot of situations. But he’s fighting through a lot.”
