Nebraska baseball, second in the Big Ten, has a saying: “gritty beats pretty.” The Huskers will take that approach to Illinois for a three-game series.
Nebraska baseball had a five-game winning streak earlier this year, and now the Huskers have a new streak going–six straight wins–after a four-game sweep of Minnesota.
It’s been a year since Nebraska played at Hawks Field. When Minnesota visits this weekend, it will also be the first NU event with fans in the stands.
There are only a “couple of different ways” a team can go after losing a series opener, Will Bolt said. Nebraska, bolstered by its offense, went the right way after dropping the first game of a weekend series at Iowa.
Nebraska and Iowa baseball split two games last week. What will that familiarity mean for the Huskers this weekend in Iowa City?
After running its winning streak to five with wins over Ohio State and Iowa to start the weekend, Nebraska went 0-2 on Sunday against the Buckeyes and Hawkeyes.
Nebraska baseball coach Will Bolt called Jaxon Hallmark the Huskers’ “spark plug” this week. That’s perhaps the easiest way to sum up everything the second baseman/outfielder/pitcher provides.
After dropping the season-opener to Purdue, Nebraska baseball won three straight off the Boilermakers as nine newcomers made their Husker debuts.
Nebraska baseball heads to Texas this week to open its season against Purdue. The Huskers will have some questions to answer on the mound following an injury to starter Colby Gomes.
Nebraska baseball finally has its schedule. The Big Ten announced the conference schedules on Wednesday, which has the Huskers playing a 44-game, conference-only schedule.
