One team is coming off a two-game home losing streak and another off a two-game road winning streak. Based on recent history, you'd assume that it was Nebraska on the ropes and Texas on a roll, but that's not the case.
Today is Nebraska's latest shot to show that it can take the next step forward. Texas is a team without a true point guard, and has a huge size advantage. Nebraska will have to use its edge in speed and ball-handling (and avoid a bizarre showing like the 18 TOs against Colorado on Wednesday), but if it can do that, and get enough high-percentage shots, they just might pull this off.
Today is Jack Moore Day at the game. Here's hoping his spirit's in the house to help his alma mater earn the victory. If you can't make it to Lincoln for the game, join us here to chat as we watch on national TV. Accounts, as always, are free.
