Nebraska Cornhuskers (12-4, 2-1) at #5/6 Oklahoma Sooners (17-1, 3-0)

Lloyd Noble Center, Norman, OK, 8:05 PM

TV: ESPNU; Radio: Husker Sports Network

Opponent's Blog: Crimson and Cream Machine

Tonight, Nebraska travels to Norman, OK to play the toughest opponent they'll face all season in the 5th- and 6th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners.  With no proven big man to defend All-World Center Blake Griffin, a win tonight would be a tall order indeed.  If they do find a way to win, this could be a chance to turn the tide towards an outside chance at a postseason berth.

The bigger question for NU tonight is going to be what of Brian Diaz (he's Jorge Brian, but apparently goes by Brian)?  The scuttlebut on the radio is that he's going to play.  If he's planning on playing this year, it makes sense that he's playing tonight, although it seems like an awfully short time to make a decision.

The game is televised nationally on ESPNU, and is the sort of game where NU has laid a big egg at this point in the season.  Maybe, just maybe, it's time for a breakthrough game.
