Husker Double Feature - Baseball and Hoops Open Thread

Nebraska baseball is looking for their first win of the season today against the New Mexico Lobos while the hoops team visits Illinois to try and steal win and get the taste of the Wisconsin disappointment out of their mouths.

Saturday, March 2 - 1:05 p.m. (CT)

RHP Brandon Pierce (0-2) vs. RHP A.J. Carman (1-0)

There will be no TV coverage this weekend, but all three games will be streamed live on HuskersNSide, subscription required.

The Huskers are in search of their first win of the season, while the Lobos enter the weekend with a 2-4 record. The Lobos opened with a three-game home series against Oklahoma State before traveling to Corpus Christi, Texas, for the Kleberg Bank College Classic. Nebraska played in the Kleberg Bank College Classic last season.

Nebraska holds a 19-8 advantage in the all-time series with the Lobos, with the first meeting coming in 1980. The Lobos last came to Lincoln in 2009 for a two-game midweek series. The Huskers took both games, 4-2 and 9-5. New Mexico's last win came during the 2007 season when the teams opened the year with a double header in Arlington, Texas. Nebraska won game one, 6-2, before the Lobos took game two, 6-2.
