Preview

This is a big match-up for both teams. Rice and Nebraska are both ranked in the top 10 of at least one poll, and this game has become an early-season tradition over the past decade. Rice has won most of the previous clashes, with the only Husker win coming in 2005.

Last Game

Nebraska dominated the Islanders of TAMU-CC, jumping out to a 5-0 lead after two innings. Drew Bowman had a good start for the Huskers, allowing seven hits and one run over 6.0 innings, with three strikeouts and no walks. A pair of two-way players finished the game for Nebraska, as Steve Edlefsen tossed a perfect seventh innings before Thad Weber moved from the DH spot to the mound. Weber struck out three in the eighth and ninth, and allowed one hit.

Rice's game yesterday was much more interesting. In the ninth inning, tied at 2 with Florida Atlantic, Joe Savery hit his first home run of the season -- a walk-off shot to win the game.
