Nebraska Baseball: Huskers Visit the Buckeyes

Darin Erstad and his team have quite a challenge ahead of them this weekend in Columbus.

This is a big week for Husker baseball as they visit the Ohio State Buckeyes with both teams in a tie for second place in the Big Ten. Ohio State and Nebraska both have 5-4 conference records

Both teams won their last conference series, Nebraska rallying in the bottom of the ninth for a rubber match and series win over Iowa, while Ohio State swept Minnesota at home.

This is an important series for Nebraska - it's time to show the team can win a road series. Their chance to win the Big Ten may depend on this weekend.
