The 12th-ranked University of Wisconsin football team hosts winless Nebraska tonight at Camp Randall Stadium (Saturday 6:30 P-M). 

The 3-1 Badgers enjoyed a bye last Saturday following a big 28-17 win at Iowa two weeks ago.  The Cornhuskers are 0-4 under first-year head coach Scott Frost and have lost eight straight games going back to last season.  Nebraska running back Greg Bell left the team Friday and plans to transfer.  Bell started the first three games, but was replaced by Devine Ozigbo who rushed for a career-high 170 yards against Purdue last week.  Meanwhile, Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor leads the nation with an average of 157 yards a game.  Taylor had his breakout performance last year at Nebraska where he rushed for 249 yards and two touchdowns.  The Huskers are 12th in the Big Ten against the run.
