Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Wisconsin Badgers Betting Information, Odds and Picks

Nebraska athletic director Trev Alberts stole a page from Michigan AD Warde Manuel.  Last year Manuel’s head coach Jim Harbaugh was on the College football betting hot seat.  Michigan was coming off their worst season in memory.  As a result, Harbaugh tried to find an NFL lifeline and was rejected.  Instead, Manuel got Harbaugh to agree to a pay cut, incentives, and lower buyout.  Alberts is bringing back coach Scott Frost for 2022 based on the same model.  Frost was hanging by a thread after failing to produce a bowl in four seasons on the job.
