Tonight, the Huskers host Rick Majerus and the 2-1 St. Louis Billikens on their second televised game of the season. The Billikens are coming off a tight win over Boston College, and look to be a tight matchup with the Huskers.
Both teams are defense-first teams and a bit undersized, so there shouldn't be a massive contrast of styles. St. Louis is a little bigger, Nebraska a little faster. The problem is that both teams are a little anemic on offense, so the game could get ugly when good defenses match up with weak offenses.
This should be the first real challenge of the year, and a good tune-up for Saturday's big tilt with Creighton.
