Wisconsin football: Keys to Victory against Nebraska
Last week the Badgers  continued to roll and handed out a beatdown to the Northwestern Wildcats, 35-7.  This week, Wisconsin welcomes the Nebraska Cornhuskers to town who sit at 3-7 on  the season  The Huskers come in with a plethora of changes to their staff, but head coach  Scott Frost remains at the helm. What do the Badgers need to do to continue  Nebraska suffering? Let take a look. Keep progressing in the passing game Over  the course of the Badger recent win streak, Braelon Allen has gotten a lot of  attention, and rightfully so, but there has also been some big progression in  the passing game. Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsGraham Mertz and company started  the year rather poorly, but theye come on strong over the last few weeks and hit  their zenith over the course of the last two weeks throwing for a total of 456  yards, five touchdowns, and just two interceptions while completing 73% of his  passes on average. Mertz has been good these last two weeks and hel have to  continue that same progress this week against a Nebraska defense that has been  pretty solid so far this year.Coming into this week, the Huskers rank No. 39 in  rushing defense which is the highest mark of the Scott Frost era. Theye done a  great job against rushing attacks and have held some of the nation's top rushers  in check  Against Michigan State, the Huskers held Kenneth Walker to just 61 yards, and  against Ohio State they held TreVeyon Henderson to just 92 yards. It apparent  that this defense is looking to stop the run, and theyl likely sell out for that  once again here. If the Badgers want to keep things clicking offensively theyl  make Nebraska prove it, but theyl also need to hit some big passing plays to  keep the chains moving. The Husker defense has been solid overall, but this team  is still 3-7, and part of that is because theye been susceptible to big plays.  If Mertz and Co. can hit some of those it should take some pressure off the run  game and gain more confidence in the passing game. Contain Adrian Martinez The  career arc of Adrian Martinez has not been pretty, but against Wisconsin,  Martinez has actually had some pretty solid performances. In the first meeting  between the two teams, Martinez racked up 441 yards of total offense. In the  second meeting, he racked up 309 yards. Those two games are some of his top  career performances at Nebraska. Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY SportsThe main reason  for his success in those games has been his ability to make things happen with  his legs. His ability to scramble and move in the pocket has been somewhat of a  challenge for Wisconsin to contain in their previous meetings. This Badger  defense has been great, but this will be an interesting new challenge for them  as they haven faced a mobile quarterback all season long. Sean Clifford? Statue.  Jack Coan? Statue. Spencer Petras? A mega statue. If you look at the schedule  you see that this is a challenge Wisconsin has not faced yet and it will be  interesting to see how they fare against that wrinkle.For Wisconsin to have  success they need to stay focused on their assignments and try to make Martinez  make plays in the pocket Caesar Williams  Jersey. He is a run-first quarterback and will look to take off any chance  he gets. The Badger linebackers will have to stay focused on keeping him  contained and making him make plays with his arm rather than his feet. Martinez  is completing just 61% of his passes, so making him throw rather than run will  be important.Play clean Overall, Nebraska problems this season are for the most  part self-inflicting. To start, they are one of the worst teams in the nation  when it comes to special teams Cole Van Lanen  Jersey. According to Football Outsiders, Nebraska ranks No. 128 when it  comes to FEI which combines all special teams stats into one overall rating.  Dylan Widger-USA TODAY SportsIts been a horrendous aspect of their team, and it  has cost them dearly. Wisconsin ranks No. 88 in that same category. That a  pretty jarring gap when you consider just how bad Wisconsin has been in that  phase of the game. Additionally, turnovers and penalties have hurt this team.  Nebraska ranks No. 89 in turnover margin and No. 32 in terms of penalty yards  per game. The penalty ranking isn as bad as you think but they have had a lot of  untimely lapses in that category which makes them stand out. If Wisconsin wants  to win this game I think it imperative that they continue to progress in these  key areas. Special teams have been poor, but the opponent is much worse and  Wisconsin for once may have an advantage there. Turnovers have been bad for  Wisconsin too, but it has been much better of late. Wisconsin has been good in  the penalty department, but they did have five questionable false starts last  week. If Wisconsin can be clean in each of these areas they should put  themselves in a good position to win this football game. More FromBucky's 5th  Quarter Badgers in the NFL: Jonathan Taylor and T.J.
