The Big Ten welcomed Nebraska officially this summer, but the schedule that came with it isn’t so welcoming for the Cornhuskers. Their initiation into the conference comes against Wisconsin at Camp Randall in Madison on Oct. 1, and it doesn’t get much easier from there. They play Ohio State the next week in Lincoln, where they also will play Michigan State and Iowa. Road tests at Michigan and Penn State in November will tell much of the story about where the Huskers are in Bo Pelini’s fourth year. Another solid Pelini brothers defense is likely to keep Nebraska in every game, but make no mistake about it: The growth of sophomore QB Taylor Martinez and his ability to stay healthy behind a young offensive line will write the story in 2011.
