Nebraska-Wisconsin pregame notes
By Adam Rittenberg
MADISON, Wis. -- A few pregame notes from Camp Randall Stadium.
- As expected, Wisconsin will be without two defensive starters: end David Gilbert (foot) and safety Shelton Johnson (calf). Brendan Kelly will start in Gilbert's spot, and Dezmen Southward will get the start for Johnson.
- Nebraska freshman RB Braylon Heard didn't make the trip because of an injury.
- The Wisconsin student section is about two-thirds full 30 minutes before kickoff. It'll be interesting to see the final turnout.
- Nebraska is wearing its traditional white uniforms with red pants. The rumor that the Huskers would sport black unis or helmets appears to be bogus.
- Russell Wilson has a cannon, and he looked impressive during warm-ups, particularly on the intermediate to deep routes.
As a reminder, we'll be chatting throughout the game. Join us!
