My first thought was that this game was on the road and that if it were, Nebraska wouldn't have much of a chance. WIlliams Arena (The Barn) is a pretty difficult place to play. As it's at home the Huskers should have a good shot. Minnesota is a little up and down under first-year coach Rick Pitino.

I have no idea what Kenpom might say about the game, mostly likely Minnesota is pretyt
