J.T. Barrett and the Ohio State Buckeyes travel to Nebraska on Saturday night

Even the magic of playing at night failed Nebraska.

And yet, the junior quarterback stood at a podium inside Memorial Stadium after Nebraska's 38-17 loss trying to explain why one of his best performances of the season didn't translate into better results.

Chris Jones, who played in his first game action against Wisconsin since injuring his knee just before the season, is now listed as the No. 2 cornerback on the depth chart.

The Huskers had a chance for a stake-in-the-ground victory but instead looked average.

"They started stopping that run and we couldn't find consistency in any one run in the second half", Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. Edwards delivered a bone-crushing hit on Nebraska's Tyler Hoppes that would reverberate around a packed Memorial Stadium, halting Nebraska's second drive. Ozigbo, who rushed for a career-high 112 yards on 23 carries, unleashed a 28-yard burst to put the Big Red quickly into Wisconsin territory. Spielman has 20 receptions for 275 yards and a touchdown so far, and he is coming off season highs against Wisconsin with six catches for 79 yards.

Taylor was trusted to pick up the bulk of yardage, while receivers ran textbook slant and button-hook routes to pick up just enough to keep the drive alive. Just using him a lot, I feel comfortable with him. I should have turned around quicker. When it bounced off my helmet, I thought it went out of bounds, but it went straight up.

What Taylor did was all too familiar for the Cornhuskers.

Whether it was staying true to its identity or because they were inspired by the occasion, No. 9 Wisconsin aped the 1997 Cornhuskers' strengths - physical running game, strong defense - in answering its latest challenge.

Safety Antonio Reed hurt his knee, and Riley said he's questionable, leaning towards doubtful heading into Saturday's game against the Buckeyes.

Nebraska is down to its third running back but it appears that Devine Ozigbo might be the best option going forward.

Ball and Gordon each went over 200 yards against them in the 2012 Big Ten championship game.

To start the second half, Wisconsin was tasked with continuing their winning brand of football. Bob Diaco's 3-4 scheme struggled to fill gaps and slow down Taylor and his fellow Wisconsin running backs. Uh, not so fast.

But the fourth quarter was all Wisconsin, as the Badgers used a 10-play, 80-yard drive that culminated in a two-yard touchdown by Taylor to push their edge to 31-17 with 9:08 left.

It was all Wisconsin after that, though, and now the Badgers face Big Ten lightweights Purdue, Maryland, Illinois and IN in their next four games.

Wisconsin ran on eight of 10 plays in a 93-yard drive for the go-ahead touchdown with Quintez Cephus scoring on a five-yard pass. Aaron Williams picked off a poorly thrown ball in the right flat by Alex Hornibrook and returned it 15 yards to tie the score at 17 with 10:53 remaining in the third quarter. Defensively, Purdue is allowing 20.8 points and 374.8 yards per game. His 249-yard night was the third most yards Nebraska had given up to a single player in school history.
