  Braelon Allen continued a tradition of Wisconsin running backs steamrolling Nebraska defenses. Allen rushed for 228 yards and three touchdowns – including a tiebreaking 53-yarder with 3:50 remaining – to help No. 19 Wisconsin outlast Nebraska 35-28 for its seventh consecutive victory Saturday. Wisconsin has beaten Nebraska eight straight times and typically has done it with dominant rushing performances, starting with the night when Melvin Gordon and Montee Ball each ran for over 200 yards in the 2012 Big Ten championship game. Gordon rushed for a school-record 408 yards against Nebraska in 2014. Jonathan Taylor exceeded 200 yards against Nebraska three separate times. "All week I heard about the yards and touchdowns that we have put up on Nebraska every year," Allen said. "It's cool to kind of continue the tradition." The Badgers (8-3, 6-2 Big Ten, No. 15 CFP) handed Nebraska (3-8, 1-7) its fifth straight loss and moved a step closer to playing for a conference title.

Wisconsin will clinch its fourth Big Ten championship game appearance in the last six years if it wins its regular-season finale at Minnesota. Wisconsin is tied with No. 18 Iowa for first place in the West but owns the tiebreaker advantage because it beat the Hawkeyes 27-7 on Oct. 30. The Badgers kept their winning streak alive Saturday because Allen was spectacular on a day when their top-ranked defense wasn't as effective as usual. Allen's performance came with Gordon watching as an honorary captain. Allen, who considers the Denver Broncos running back an idol and an inspiration, said it was surreal to shake his hand and talk to him before the game. "It started with the 408 against Nebraska," Allen said. "At the time, I was just finishing up my fifth-grade season. I honestly didn't know if I even liked football at that point. I saw that game and that's kind of what sparked it all for me, trying to be like him one day." Allen, who had 22 carries, has rushed for over 100 yards in each of Wisconsin's last seven games. The 17-year-old had totaled 12 carries during Wisconsin's 1-3 start. - Wisconsin/AP College Football
