Big Ten Championship Game odds: Nebraska favored to reach Rose Bowl over Wisconsin

The Cornhuskers are double digit favorites in their rematch against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are favored by 12 points over the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship game as they look to make it back to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 2002.

Nebraska handled the Badgers at home in September as quarterback Taylor Martinez helped the Cornhuskers rally back from a 17-point deficit to win 30-27. In the game, the dual-threat signal caller completed 17-of-29 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns while also chipping in 107 yards and a rushing touchdown on the ground.

With Nebraska having the better record, the Cornhuskers will have the luxury of their rematch being in Memorial Stadium once again. Nebraska has not lost once at home this season and they only have two losses in their friendly confines over the last three years.

On the flip side, the Badgers have lost three of their last four after their promising 6-2 start. All three of those losses have come in overtime though so this game could be more competitive than most are expecting.
