ESPN's College GameDay was in Lincoln, Nebraska on Saturday morning in anticipation of the Huskers' big home game against Ohio State.

The college football pregame show was great, as thousands of Huskers fans showed up for the live show. ESPN's panel of analysts was extremely impressed with the fan support.

Then, the game happened...

Nebraska was blown out by Ohio State, 48-7, at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln. Unfortunately, that's a College GameDay record.

"Little bit of a boring day today, but Nebraska spiced things up by earning the distinction of largest home loss on College GameDay. Previous record was Utah's 40 point loss to TCU in 2010. Tonight the Buckeyes won by 41 points, 48-7," Reddit CFB tweeted.

That's tough for a Nebraska program that came into the 2019 season with preseason top 25 hype.

Ohio State is really good this season, though. The Buckeyes had trouble with the Huskers last season, winning a close game at home, only to shellack the Nebraska football program in Lincoln this year.

The Buckeyes should be moving up in the polls as a result of this thumping.
