Groundhog Day was last Sunday, but for the Huskers, it may have been Wednesday night. The wolverine and groundhog aren't that dissimilar in the first place, right?
The Huskers took to the road looking to carry over their success at home. It didn't happen. The Huskers struggled defending the Michigan three. That's being kind. They didn't defend the Michigan offensive attack. The Wolverines blitzed the Huskers with nine first half three pointers dashing out to a 48-21 half time lead. It was elementary from there. Michigan didn't slow down in the second half, extending the lead to as high as 41 points, 75-34 before they let off the gas to finish off the win 79-50.
Terran Petteway was also held to his lowest point total since scoring only four vs. South Carolina St. in the third game of the season. Shavon Shields led the Huskers with 13 and Nathan Hawkins poured in 11 to set his career high. The Huskers look to pick up the pieces on Saturday at Northwestern.
