Baseball: Game Times, Starters, TV/Radio Options As Huskers Take On Michigan

Big Red takes the show on the road for a must-win series to keep their NCAA Tourney at-large hopes alive.

Jon Johnston

There was no mid-week games last weekend for the Nebraska Baseball team, and that's probably a good thing. After losing 2 of 3 games to the B1G Basement dwelling Northwestern Wildcats, the Huskers needed to regroup and get rested for the rest of the Big Ten schedule.

Next up this weekend for Nebraska (26-16 overall, 8-4 B1G) is a trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan to take on the Michigan Wolverines (18-22-1 overall, 8-7 B1G) at Ray Fisher Stadium for a 3 game set that, if Nebraska wants to keep their at-large NCAA Tournament hopes going, they must at least win if not sweep.

- RPI: While Nebraska does have 11 wins against teams in the top 100 of College Baseball's RPI, they have 3 losses against teams below the 200 rank, with 2 of those coming against Northwestern (224th) and one against Northern Colorado (299th at the time of the game). The Huskers are still one of only two teams (Indiana - 4th) that has a RPI above 100 in the B1G.

Nebraska's current RPI according to Warren Nolan's site is 49th, with a Strength of Schedule at 70th.Pre-NW series, Nebraska was at 36th in RPI.  It's easy to say that Nebraska needs their former non-conference opponents in Arkansas, UNLV and Oregon State to keep doing well to push up the SOS, but in the end, Nebraska can only take care of themselves.

- The Huskers do have a 5 game road winning streak, as it was helped by a sweep at Minnesota a couple weeks ago. In their last 10 games, Nebraska is 7-3. Nebraska in those 10 games have hit .309 while their opponents have hit .287.

- Michael Pritchard and Blake Headley have been the hottest hitters of the bunch in the last 10 games. Pritchard is 20-40 with 6 doubles, 1 triple and 1 HR. Headley has 17 hits, including 6 multi-hit games (3 three hit games) in those 10 games.

- Friday afternoon, Nebraska SS Steven Reveles was put on the watch list of the Brooks Wallace Award, which is awarded to the nation's top Shortstop.
