College football season is well underway and, while there might not be any Team USA athletes on the field, many can be found in the stands or glued to their TVs while cheering for their favorite school. Each week, we take a closer look at a big game through the eyes of Team USA athletes. This week's matchup features a pair of Big Ten programs as University of Nebraska travels to Madison, Wisconsin, to face University of Wisconsin Wisconsin. To prepare, we asked former Cornhuskers football player Curt Tomasevicz and former Badgers hockey player Brianna Decker who they like in Saturday's game.

What is your favorite college football memory?

Alamo Bowl my senior year in 2003. We beat Michigan St. despite having half a coaching staff, and many fans had written off the season as a disappointment. The seniors led the team to a win and brought a unified team together. It was a very proud way to end my football career.

What is your favorite tailgate food?

I think I can eat about 2,000 wings if given the opportunity.

Best tailgate memory?

This is the first time in my life I’ve been able to tailgate. I played from 2000 to 2003 and then I started bobsledding in 2004. So I’ve never really been around Lincoln for a football season!

Final score prediction?

NU 28, Wisconsin 17

Why do you think Nebraska will win?

Nebraska has had a great ability to stay strong throughout a game and wear opponents down in the second half. The first half may be close, but as the game goes on, the Huskers (especially the defense) will start to dominate. This prediction will hold more truth if Ameer Abdullah is a healthy running back for the game.

What is the game day atmosphere like in Madison?

Game day atmosphere in Madison is like no other college game day! The student section might show up a little late to the game, but, when they show up, everyone in Madison can hear them. The classic "Jump Around" every third quarter is a tradition that has been around forever and actually shakes the entire stadium. This tradition is unlike any other college tradition and the student involvement speaks volumes.

What is your favorite college football memory?

My favorite college football memory is when the Badgers crushed Nebraska in 2011, 48-17, and everyone rushed on the field after the game.

What is your favorite tailgate food?

Favorite tailgate food is the classic Wisconsin bratwurst with a side of squeaky cheese curds! And, of course, a Wisconsin beverage favorite to complement that braty flavor all the more!

Best tailgate memory?

Best tailgate memory would be playing bags/corn hole with my teammates on our weekend off!

Final score prediction?

Badgers a lot, Nebraska zero!

Why do you think Wisconsin will win?

I think the Badgers will win because we have Melvin Gordon III!
