The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been viewed as the favorites to win the Big Ten Championship Game all week long. After opening as 2 1/2 point favorites over the Wisconsin Badgers, most lines have since moved to a full three points, according to Odds Shark.

The over/under for the game opened at 48 points. It has since moved all the way to 50 points on some gambling sites. That may seem a bit high given the two teams' defenses, although the coaching staff will hold nothing back with a BCS birth on the line. Look for Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez and Wisconsin tailback Montee Ball to have big games in the national spotlight.

Kickoff for Saturday night's Big Ten Championship Game is set for 8:17 p.m. ET. It will be played at beautiful Lucas Oil Field, which houses the Colts during the NFL season. FOX will televise all of the action live.
