Nebraska likely saw its chances hurt severely by a home sweep at the hands of Rutgers two weekends ago.
Will Bolt said Wednesday morning he is "very" confident that Northwestern will be in Lincoln for this weekend's series at Haymarket Park.
The Nebraska baseball team picked a heck of a week to try and reset: "Long road trip, don’t care. Tired, don’t care. Just show up and play."
Pitcher Kyle Perry is getting closer to becoming game-ready as Nebraska enters a rigorous final month of the season.
The last time Will Bolt lamented Nebraska's offense, it responded with 15 wins in the next 18 games.
It marked the first time No. 22 Nebraska has been swept in a conference series since 2016, when the Huskers lost three games at Michigan.
The 6,105 number represents about 75% capacity at Haymarket Park and comes as Nebraska enters the national rankings for the first time this season.
NU is No. 19 in the Perfect Game top 25, after being No. 22 last week. D1Baseball ranks the Huskers No. 22, while Baseball America has Nebraska at No. 24.
NU coach Will Bolt: "We've got that grit board that we try to fill up, and there weren't a whole lot of things on there today."
Sure, it's easier when the wins start to pile up. But Will Bolt gives insight into how the team's nonregulars make an impact.
NU has won four games in a row, six of its last seven, and 13 of its last 15 games to improve to 18-6 and stay atop the Big Ten standings.
NU scored five runs in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and beat Penn State 8-2 Friday night in University Park, Pennsylvania.
Versatility has been a prominent theme for the Huskers this season. Perhaps the most prominent example is a fifth-year senior.
Max Anderson homered in his first college at-bat, and the Husker has kept going from there. Here's a closer look at how he's getting it done.
In addition to his starting shortstop role, Spencer Schwellenbach is also the Huskers' closer this season — and doing it at a high level.
"We tell our guys that fortune favors the bold, and we want our guys to compete that way."
Nebraska is off to an 11-4 start with three games against Illinois waiting.
The Huskers will appear on BTN five times, NET twice, and ESPNU once.
Against Minnesota on the prettiest Sunday of the year, Schanaman showed why the Husker coaches are confident in him.
The point is, Chris Basnett writes, the Huskers are winning — and finding different ways to do it.
Nebraska fans roared early and often as Nebraska rolled to a win — "I mean, there's no other fans that are greater than Husker fans."
Nebraska still has 75% of its season remaining. Even so, the team is already treating Sunday like the postseason. Why?
The win gave Nebraska (7-4) the series victory after Iowa took Friday's opener, and provided some validation that NU's offense is back on track.
"There's no secrets with either team at this point, just seeing each other this many times in a row." So, what exactly does that mean?
Nebraska managed just two hits after the first inning and struck out 10 times.
