The Huskers have won 3 straight against the Wildcats, when Nebraska swept the Wildcats last year in the conference opening series at Haymarket Park. Two seasons ago, Nebraska opened their B1G conference slate versus NW, with the Wildcats taking 2 of 3 games at Rocky Miller Park.

Speaking of Rocky Miller Park, NW has some big plans for their Baseball park soon. You should check them out here.

Nebraska has had four complete games from their starting pitchers in the last 10 games. Christian DeLeon has had 2 of those, with Aaron Bummer and Chance Sinclair having the other ones.

In that 10 game span, Michael Pritchard has hit a salty .450 with 5 doubles, a triple, a HR and 14 RBI's.

Also in that 10 game span, the team has hit .307 with 3 of it's 8 homers this season. Opponents are hitting .255 in that span also. Nebraska pitchers have also gotten 59 strikeouts while only issuing 28 walks.

UPDATE: With the possibility of inclimate weather coming into Lincoln on Sunday, Saturday will be a doubleheader. The times and such above have been adjusted. Fans with tickets to Sunday's game can use them for any remaining Nebraska home game, including tomorrow per the Nebraska AD office.
