7:01 pm
espn sports center is projecting that wisconsin will win this game. and therefore, at some risk, we update the standings. >> chris: nebraska needs to get ready next week because the minnesota golden gofer power running game is coming to them. they'll be tested. so whatever issues they have had on the ground, they need to get that fixed during this week of practice. >> sean: didn't fully get the word that wisconsin is 5-1. it stops in the snow inside the one yard line. josh faulkenberry hustling down there. it looked like it had come to a halt. 70-yard punt. so there are the updated standings. fully updated now. both teams 8-2. nebraska's hopes of being in the college football playoff which
7:02 pm
were slim are totally ex-twinge kwished now. it's going to be a nice season but unless wisconsin stumbles down the stretch, it will be another year without a conference championship for nebraska. >> chris: they have to get ready to go next week because they're going to get the same type of challenge. minnesota can run the football. >> sean: fumble. >> chris: picked up by gerry. >> sean: finish the play by play. that was excellent. go ahead. >> chris: oh. that's about the easiest job i ever had to be honest with you. >> sean: now you know the truth. >> chris: yes. >> sean: we mentioned earlier this does bring wisconsin and iowa back -- minnesota and iowa back into the equation as well. because if minnesota can pop off wisconsin then all of a sudden
7:03 pm
all those teams have two losses. there's a lot of football left to be played. this also affects in a negative way ohio state which has been zooming up the college football playoff rankings. they and their fans are hoping they get to the championship game against the one loss nebraska team to give t them a n more of their resume booster. newby, the touchdown for nebraska! the advantage of the turnover and the 56-0 wisconsin run on a two-run score. >> chris: everybody was trying to project ahead. obviously ohio state has the inside track of winning the east and virginia tech knocking off number 21, duke today which would help them. they were hoping for a one loss. nebraska team in the big ten championship game to build their resume in the committee selection process.
7:04 pm
>> sean: 4-2. nebraska 4-2. iowa, 4-2. wisconsin is at iowa and then has minnesota here in the battle for paul bunion's actix. if you tuned in, you missed history. gordon had a couple early fumbles. that seemed as you noted at the time that it just inspired him to play with that much more focus and tenacity. the offensive line shows and opened up a lot of big holes for him to run through. >> chris: i want to give credit to a guy -- tj woods, the offensive line coach f you can get players, experienced players
7:05 pm
to play together like that offensive line does to open up the holes for gordon, having the outstanding ability, as a coach that's what you want to see. believe me, sean, those offensive linemen are going to celebrate that as much as gordon and gordon will celebrate with them because that's a testament to them it's a team game. melvin is the one that gets the credit deservedly so. >> sean: kickoff is down. n melvin holds the yards of the game record.
7:06 pm
and dane the all-time rushing record and i hold the touchdown record. a great tradition of rushing the football and great running backs here. >> chris: if you're a running back, you want to get your touches and get noticed and get opportunities, why would you not come here to play? and they win. they win ball games. >> sean: houston is in as a quarterback now. lewallen wrestled down. well, with the expanded big ten this year, the additions of maryland and rutgers they have done a nice job with the scheduling, they have saved the division games for the very end. wisconsin all alone now in first place on the west. iowa with two losses in conference. minnesota with two losses.
7:07 pm
and nebraska also has games remaining against those two teams. >> chris: you wonder which iowa team is going to show up. sometimes iowa is very good or very average. >> sean: 7-3 after their win today. if they do throw in the surprise every now and then. we were there for their home loss to iowa state which is a real head scratcher as the season goes along. tuesday night, espn2 the selection committee will reveal the latest rankings. find out who is in. top 25 ranking show presented by chick-fil-a is tuesday. and also on watchespn. >> chris: a report on madison. best time to deliver, santa. >> sean: lewallen heading for
7:08 pm
first down. hard to see the yard line now. he's at the 36 yard line. >> chris: again, a big proponent. i cannot reconcile in my mind putting somebody above somebody that you lose to head to head. i don't understand that. >> sean: unless there was great disparity in the records. >> chris: yeah. thank you. >> sean: tcu and baylor, each one lost teams starting the day. well, the fans serenading nebraska. >> chris: nebraska will go back and address the issues. >> sean: talk about the lack of the big win, chris. both nebraska now in head to
7:09 pm
head games. they have lost seven in a row. >> chris: frustration point. a play from the quarterback position, you have to be valid unless you're wisconsin which you only threw for 46 yards today. >> sean: gordon still has enough left in the tank to jog across the field. 408 yards rushing. played three quarters. a single record. as a team, 581 yards rushing for wisconsin. you think about how much different their season might be, chris. they threw away in many ways the opener against lsu and their other conference loss was the northwestern and a big surprise when they committed four turnovers. final score is wisconsin 59, nebraska 24.
