In a video tweeted by Kevin Sjuts, Frost told the media that “Wisconsin has been the best team in the West for a while” and that it’s important to start beating elite teams like the Badgers “at some point.”

Asked Scott Frost about the difficulty of playing Wisconsin immediately after Ohio St, and the importance of Saturday’s game. And his answer was really, really good.

As of right now, the game against Nebraska hasn’t been canceled, despite the fact that it appears to be at serious risk of not happening.
So, for the time being, I’m going to proceed as if Wisconsin will travel to Lincoln Saturday to crush the Cornhuskers.
The Wisconsin/Nebraska game is likely going to be canceled because of coronavirus.
It’s time for a gut check, America. We can hide in our basements forever, or we can accept the risks.
I vote for the latter because being an American means something. https://t.co/ZFY67Z0Jvv

Now that we have all of that out of the way, I think we can all agree that Scott Frost is 100% correct. Wisconsin is without a doubt the best team in the Big 10 west and has been for a long time.
Every single year, we dominate the rest of the division. Now, we don’t always win it, but we damn sure win it more times than we don’t.
Wisconsin has been the class of the Big Ten West, but have a lot of talent to replace this season

If there was ever a time for Nebraska to beat Wisconsin, it’s right now. We’re down to our 4th string quarterback, we’re dealing with serious coronavirus issues and this is the weakest we’ve been in years in terms of roster availability.
If Nebraska can’t beat the Badgers right now, then I’m not sure they ever will.
You can catch the game at 3:30 EST on FS1.
