No. 2: Alvarez Alcatraz (Wisconsin)

Now we’re getting to the tippity top of the totem pole and this back-and-forth has the flames stoked already.

Wisconsin has dealt Nebraska two of its worst loses in recent memory, let alone in Big Ten play. However, they’ll also be known as the team that was a part of the second-largest comeback in the history of Husker football (for now).

When you add the Barry Alvarez connection, it’s a natural fit.
