ESPN: Martinez, Huskers get chance at redemption
The groan on the other end of the phone said it all.
The wounds from Nebraska's loss to Wisconsin in 2011 haven't fully healed.
"Oh God," Huskers linebacker Will Compton told ESPN.com, "I hate to reflect on that. It was definitely a bad taste, a terrible ride back."
It's not easy for Nebraska players to recall the night of Oct. 1, 2011, when their Big Ten debut turned into a debacle in Madison, Wis., as they were pounded 48-17 by the host Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium.
