The present met the past in October of 2017 when Wisconsin met Nebraska in Lincoln.

Big Red holding their own until the 3rd quarter, when the Badgers rattled off 21 unanswered points to win 38–17.

Wisconsin rushing for 353 yards and three touchdowns in their 21–point victory. The rout making Husker fans think back to a day and age when they once dominated with a similar power running attack.

Something the Badgers might have copied from the glory days of Nebraska football.

Wouldn't be a surprise when you account Paul Chryst and Scott Frost having similar career's with both men playing quarterback for the college of their home states they now coach at.

"I've said this a lot of times, Berry Alvarez is a Nebraska guy and what they're doing is the Nebraska model", Frost said. "They've been out Nebraskaining Nebraska, and we're here to fix that."

"I don't know about that, I think they'res models and different models for football," Chryst said. "And all we're looking at is what's the best way for each team we have to be as successful as they can."

The Huskers loss to Wisconsin ranked among their worst defeats at home in program history.

But Frost and his new team will get their shot at redemption Oct. 6th against the Badgers on the road in Madison.
