Nebraska heads off to play Alabama today, for their last series before Big 12 play begins. The Huskers swept three games from the Crimson Tide last season in Lincoln, and look to get back to their winning ways after dropping two of three games in Florida last weekend.
Alabama comes into the series having dropped their last two games, to Southern Miss and Tennessee Tech. Fellow SBnation blog Roll Bama Roll has a preview of tonight's game up now.
There are some questions about the pitching staff for Alabama, which the Husker's offense should be able to take advantage of. Team batting leader Thad Weber returns to action after missing the Stetson invite due to personal reasons. Jake Opitz is on fire after hitting two home runs last weekend, and Bryce Nimmo's terrible bat will be replaced by DJ Belfonte's team leading on-base percentage.
The games will be broadcast on the Husker Sports Network, so tune in your radios to your local affiliate tonight at 6:30 p.m. central time. If you're out of state, you can tune in to the free webcast on Huskers.com, and keep up with the live stats also.
