Thursday marks the nine-year anniversary of Nebraska joining the Big 10, and getting obliterated by Wisconsin in their first game.

The Cornhuskers faced the Badgers October 1, 2011 in the first B1G action they’d ever seen. In one of the most glorious games ever played, Russell Wilson and company ran them off of the damn field. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

By the time the clock hit zero, the score was 48-17! We ran it up on the boys from Lincoln.

I’ve been to a lot of great college football games in my life, and that one might honestly be the best one I’ve ever witnessed in person.

It’s definitely a strong contender for the top spot. Nebraska fans flooded Madison thinking they were going to crush the Badgers.

After all, these were the mighty Cornhuskers from Lincoln! They were used to dominating the Big 12. They thought they’d steamroll the B1G.

Little did they know what was waiting for them on that gorgeous October night. It was utter destruction, and it set the tone for the years that followed.

I appreciate Nebraska being in the B1G, and I’ll never get tired of running it up on them. It’s a tradition as old as time!
