Nebraska hasn’t won a road game over a top-10 team in this millennium.
The No. 10 Huskers (7-1, 4-1) will try to change that this weekend as they travel to Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday to play No. 6 Ohio State (7-1, 4-1) in hopes of keeping their Big Ten championship and College Football Playoff hopes alive.
On the other side, Ohio State is determined to make sure its championship hopes aren’t derailed with a second loss before even playing its rival, No. 3 Michigan.
Here’s how to catch the action.

Nebraska vs. Ohio State keys to the game
1. Can Nebraska build on last week’s overtime loss at Wisconsin?
A week ago, Nebraska fell at Wisconsin in overtime, a loss that let everyone know the Huskers really could play with some of the best teams in the country.
But Ohio State has been, as coach Mike Riley said this week, “That Team” in the past few years. Can Nebraska pull off the upset and get the program over the hump?
2. Which Ohio State team will Nebraska get?
Ohio State hasn’t looked like Ohio State the past three weeks, with close wins over Wisconsin and Northwestern, plus the loss at Penn State.
Earlier in the season the Buckeyes were dominant. Will the wear of the season show on the Buckeyes, or will they punish Nebraska and retake their claim as That Team?
3. What happens in the fourth quarter?
Nebraska has a plus-95 scoring margin in the fourth quarter this season. The Huskers have both put away teams in the fourth and come back to win late in the fourth.
If the game is close, can Nebraska put away Ohio State on the road in front of 105,000-plus? And if the Huskers are down, will they be able to rally like they did last week at Wisconsin?
