Wisconsin LB Zack Baun throws shade at 'rivalry' with Nebraska: The trophy's never left here
Wisconsin and Nebraska established a trophy game in 2014, but the series has been completely one-sided since then.
The Freedom Trophy was established in 2014 when both teams became division rivals in the B1G West. Though trophy games are a great part of college football, Nebraska has yet to win this one. The Badgers are 5-0 since 2014 with six straight wins in the series.
On Monday, Wisconsin LB Zack Baun was asked about the game as a rivalry. Simply put, he said he doesn’t view Nebraska as a rival.
Why? Wisconsin’s never lost the trophy:
“No pressure, it’s just another game,” said Baun. “The trophy’s never left here, so I don’t think it’s a rivalry yet. Maybe it was before but it definitely isn’t anymore.”
Zach Heilprin with 96.7 The Zone shared the video of Baun’s comments:
