Twitter argument with Wisconsin cops was only fun Nebraska fans had

Sunday November 16th, 2014

Saturday's game against Wisconsin didn't go so well for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers were blown out 59-24 in a critical Big Ten West game and allowed Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon to run for 408 yards on 25 carries, setting the FBS record for rushing yards in a game.

The only source of amusement for Husker fans was the ever-comical Fake Bo Pelini Twitter account. With Wisconsin taking a 24-10 halftime lead and then blowing the game open in the third quarter, @FauxPelini quickly resorted to negotiating with Wisconsin's university police.

Nebraska's hopes of winning the Big Ten and possibly sneaking into the Playoff were squashed with its embarrassing performance in Madison, but at least the fake Pelini was there to add some levity to the whole thing.
