    ESPN: Bret Bielema has contacted Big Ten about having Nebraska as "End-of-Year Rival

    Per ESPN Bottomline. Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema has contacted Big Ten Officials about a end-of-season rivalry game with the Cornhuskers. Maybe Wisconsin-Nebraska will be bigger than Iowa-Nebraska???

    Bielema can NU as the last game of the season as long as Iowa gets NU on Thanksgiving day.

    I would be more worried about winning games now. I know Wisconsin is a good program but the playing field in the big 10 looks to be a little more even now with NU in, Iowa gaining ground on PSU and tOSU, NW is pretty solid, and Michigan and Minnesota won't stay down forever.

    I'd rather watch Penn State play Nebraska on Thanksgiving.

    You can't just artificially "create" a rivalry BB...

    The better question is what is the infatuation with either of these teams? They both suck. I don't care when they play. That day, there is no winners... just two teams playing that I hope both get an L.

    I hate watching any big ten football regardless of what day it is on.

    Maybe to replace the NU/CU game that is played the day after Thanksgiving? If I had my way, I wouldn't let that rivalry go away - play it as a non-conf. on that Friday, like it has been for years! Not that any conf. glory would be at stake, but then again, it hasn't been for awhile...

    Michigan OSU will always be the last game of the season not thanksgiving weekend. Iowa NU on TG weekend makes a ton of sense. NU already has a following from playing on that day, both are geographic rivals, it will be a competitive game, and people will watch.
