Stout pitching led Nebraska to three baseball wins at Penn State.

The Huskers have little time to catch their breath. They begin a five-game week Tuesday when Kansas State visits Haymarket Park. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.

NU will play Omaha at Werner Park on Wednesday before diving back into Big Ten play at Iowa on Friday.

Nebraska (20-10) checks in at No. 30 in the Collegiate Baseball Top 25 poll. More importantly, the Huskers sit at 37th in the RPI rankings, up 12 spots from a week ago.

Nebraska won 7-0 at Kansas State on April 2. Freshman Kyle Perry threw seven shutout innings in the win.

Kansas State (16-21) is 4-4 since that loss, but the Wildcats are coming off their biggest series win of the season. The Wildcats took two of three from then-No. 14 Texas over the weekend.

K-State will start right-hander Caleb Littlejim against the Huskers. NU did not announce a starter for Tuesday's game.

Omaha enters Wednesday's contest against the Huskers at 21-9-1, including 13-2 in Summit League play.
