In just a few hours arguably the biggest game of the day will take place in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Huskers are set to take on No. 5 Ohio State in clash of Big Ten programs. Two of the most notable football programs in college football history face their toughest tests of the season on Saturday night.

Early Saturday morning, ESPN's College GameDay broadcast from Lincoln and Nebraska fans came out in full force.

Despite the excitement surrounding the game, the weather gods might have a word first.

Rain is expected to pelt Lincoln tonight leading up to kickoff and well into the night.

A night game on the road with rain falling sounds like the perfect setting for an upset.

Can sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez keep pace with the Buckeyes' vaunted offense? We'll find out tonight when the two teams kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The game will be broadcast on ABC.
