An overview of the University of Wisconsin football team's performance against Nebraska at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday.

Game ball

Taylor Martinez: The Nebraska quarterback may not be pretty passer, but he gets the job done in that department and gave the Badgers fits with his running.

Thumbs up

Jared Abbrederis: UW’s offense is nothing to write home about, but imagine where would it be without its junior wide receiver, who has produced back-to-back 100-yard games.

Thumbs down

Adidas: Hopefully, the alternate uniforms worn by both teams will be burned, never to be seen again.

By the numbers

3 – points UW had produced on its opening drive of games this season before scoring a touchdown on its first series against the Cornhuskers.

289 – receiving yards for Abbrederis the last two weeks.

276 – consecutive offensive plays run by UW opponents this season without turning over the ball until Badgers linebacker Chris Borland recovered a fumble by Nebraska’s Rex Burkhead on the first play of the Cornhuskers’ second series.

The view

How the Badgers see it: Nebraska practically handed us the game in the first 35 minutes and we have nothing to show for it.

How the fans see it: We’d gladly take three yards and a cloud of dust from our running game at this point.

How the pollsters see it: The only thing uglier than UW’s uniforms was its offense in the second half.
