Nebraska Beats Iowa 13-7 for Big Ten Conference Title Game Spot

Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Rex Burkhead ran for 69 yards and the go-ahead touchdown as No. 14 Nebraska beat Iowa 13-7 to advance to college football’s Big Ten conference title game.

Nebraska captured the Legends Division with the victory and will play two-time defending Big Ten Champion Wisconsin for the conference championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Dec. 1.

Quarterback Taylor Martinez completed 8 of 14 passes for 63 yards in Iowa City, Iowa, for the Huskers, who won their sixth straight game to finish the regular season 10-2 and 7-1 in the conference.

Quarterback James Vandenberg connected on 11 of 24 passes for 92 yards, with two interceptions, for Iowa (4-8, 2-6).

The Cornhuskers and Badgers will meet for the second time this season. During the Big Ten opener on Sept. 29, Nebraska rallied from a 17-point third-quarter deficit to tie the score at 27-27 entering the fourth quarter, then scored a field goal for the 30-27 victory.

Wisconsin returns to the Big Ten Football Championship game after earning a 42-39 victory over Michigan State in the inaugural contest to claim a second straight conference title and trip to the Rose Bowl Game. The Badgers are looking for their 14th Big Ten title and a third straight crown for the first time in school history.

Nebraska, which has won 43 conference titles, is looking for its first Big Ten Championship.
