Nebraska will try to snap back after three straight losses. The Husker offense has fallen on hard times, failing to reach 60 points in all three games. Through the first 22 games this season, Nebraska fell short of 60 points just one time. Over the last three games Nebraska has hit just 30.7 percent of its shots from the field, including just 25 percent of its three-pointers. NU has also struggled to hit just 57.5 percent of its free throws.
Wisconsin will try to snap a four-game losing streak with all four setbacks to top-tier Big Ten teams.
