Pelini, Huskers meet media on eve of Big Ten title game

Nebraska beat  Wisconsin 30-27 on Sept. 29. Nebraska beat Wisconsin 30-27 on Sept. 29.

Saturday's Big Ten Championship game between Nebraska and Wisconsin will be the third meeting between the two schools in 14 months.

And, for the Huskers, they know exactly what's at stake: the programs first conference title since 1999, and first BCS bowl since 2001. 

Nebraska is playing for a conference championship for the third time in four years and is riding a six game winning streak into Saturday's showdown.  Wisconsin is hoping to claim its third straight league title.

Back in September, the Huskers overcame a 17-point second half deficit to defeat the Badgers 30-27.

Finishing has been a running theme for the Huskers who came back from double-digit deficits to win four of their final six games of the season.  They hope those situations give them an edge on Saturday.

"It's something you either do or you don't.  And, every game is a little bit different, every situation is different in terms of how the game goes," Head Coach Bo Pelini said.    Our kids have shown a lot of character and a lot of resolve.  And I believe our experience in those close games and having some success there will help us tomorrow night."

Kick off for the Huskers and Badgers is set 7:17 p.m. on Saturday.
