Nebraska Star RB Ameer Abdullah Will Play Saturday vs. Wisconsin

Nebraska will have its star running back when it faces Wisconsin Saturday in a showdown that will almost certainly decide the Big Ten West Division title race. 

Ameer Abdullah, the Huskers' senior Heisman candidate who injured his MCL during a Nov. 1 game against Purdue, is going to play against the Badgers. Abdullah has practiced all week while wearing a protective brace on his knee. According to Nebraska's coaches, Abdullah has looked good in practice.

Nebraska and Wisconsin are set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ABC.
