Wisconsin just topped Nebraska and the Badgers are pumped.

Wisconsin and Nebraska squared off in a massive Big Ten clash and the Badgers came out victorious at home by the score of 23-17 in overtime. The two teams play for the Freedom Trophy and the Badgers are thrilled to have it in their grasp this season:

The Badgers topped the Cornhuskers a year ago at Nebraska 23-21.

The Badgers managed to out-gain the Cornhuskers 337-305 with the bulk of their work coming on the ground with 223 rushing yards. Dare Ogunbowale led the Badgers in rushing with 120 yards and one score on just 11 carries on the night.

Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook threw for just 71 yards and one score while Bart Houston added another 43 passing yards in the game.

Wisconsin's big win spoils Nebraska's undefeated season as the Cornhuskers now sit at 7-1 on the season. Wisconsin now stands at 6-2 on the year after the win on Saturday night.
