HOL take: Wisconsin tried to force the issue against Adrian Martinez and brought pressure more than any team all season. 22 of Martinez's 36 dropbacks the Badgers brought more than four pass rushers. He was 16-of-22 for 250 yards on those throws. Martinez was 3-of-8 on throws of 20+ yards. 26 of his 35 attempted passes came on play actions.

Running the ball was not a big stat line for Martinez, but an effective one. Four of his eight rushing attempts converted first downs. He had 23 yards rushing with 19 coming on one play. Many of his runs came in short-yardage situations.

HOL take: Considering the context of who Nebraska was playing on defense and who was available at running back Saturday, this group probably did as well as they could, with all three backs scoring between 63.4 to 66.3.

The long-run for the group was 11 yards from Brody Belt, as he averaged 3.43 yards after first contact. Marvin Scott and Belt also had two combined receptions for 16 yards.

The backs did not grade out well in pass protection though, as Belt had a mark of 13.0 on nine pass blocking plays, while Scott had a 7.4 on three snaps. Markese Stepp was not involved in one pass pro play.

HOL take: Samori Toure hauled in seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown on Saturday. Martinez targetted him 11 times as his mark of 85.3 is the best of the season for him. He's had 263 yards receiving now over the last two games.

Alante Brown saw his most snaps since the Northwestern game, while Zavier Betts tied his season-high for snaps played.

Oliver Martin's fall also is worth noting. PFF dinged him pretty hard on Martinez's first interception with an overall grade of 45.1 on four snaps. He's seen just 27 total snaps since the Michigan game where he played 48. He saw 30 snaps vs. Northwestern, and 58 against Illinois.

HOL take: Austin Allen received his highest overall grade of the season on Saturday vs. Wisconsin, setting a new Nebraska single-game record with 143 yards receiving. The 60 snaps he played on Saturday were the second-most he's seen since the Illinois game where he played 62.

Travis Vokolek's 60 snaps were the most he has seen all season, topping his previous high of 47 vs. Michigan State.

Freshman Thomas Fidone saw his first action of the season at tight end. It appeared he took Chancellor Brewington's reps, as he did not travel to Madison.

The tight ends combined for nine catches for 176 yards on Saturday. That is the most productive game we have seen from the tight end position at Nebraska in years.

HOL take: We have been critical of this group most of the season, but considering the context of the opponent, the offensive line played one of its better games all year.

Turner Corcoran had by far his highest-graded game in every category, despite having two penalties. The line was dinged for nine QB hurries, one QB hit and four penalties on Saturday on 36 total pass dropbacks.

Broc Bando saw seven snaps at right tackle stepping in for Bryce Benhart who was NU's lowest graded lineman of the day.
