Nebraska Pounds the Scarlet Knights 16-1

Case Sanderson goes 3-5 with a home run and 2 RBI. | Nebraska Athletic Department It was a feel-good day for the Big Red in Piscataway!

Rutgers Walks Off Nebraska Baseball 7-6 in 11 Innings

The game went into the 6th inning a scoreless tie. Then the weather...

HUSKERS SOFTBALL Recap – Mom Said There Would Be Days Like This: Rutgers 9 NEBRASKA 3

It reminded me of how I had to restrain myself when parents said things like, “There’ll be days like this!” During days like this. Sometime in the middle of the game, one of the logic-challenged Rutgers cheerleaders calling the game on B1G+ app mentioned the flight carrying the Huskers to New Jersey the previous night had been delayed several hours and did not arrive until well after midnight. And thank goodness it did, or else there would be no excuse for the mistake-riddled day which...

Before we get into the gents who make this group up, let’s look at some numbers. As of now, there are 100 scholarship players in...
