After sweeping last weekend's set versus Penn State, Your Nebraska Cornhusker Baseball team will take the show on the road for one final time in this regular season, as they play guests to the Michigan State Spartans.

Nebraska (32-17, 13-5 B1G) have won their last four games overall, and has a 11-7 road record. Michigan State (25-20, 8-10 B1G), on the other hand, have won their last 2 games but are sporting a 7 game winning streak at McLane Stadium in East Lansing.

Series History:

The Huskers and Spartans have only met 4 times total, splitting each of the 2 games. The only times that Nebraska and Michigan State have met since Nebraska became a member of the B1G was during the Big Ten Tournament in 2012, as Sparty took that game 10-9. The Huskers did trail in that game 10-2 heading in to the ninth inning, however.

Notes:

- With Christian DeLeon once again not available this weekend, Chance Sinclair will make the start for the first game of the set. The Junior is 7-1 with a B1G leading 1.87 ERA. The second game goes to Aaron Bummer, who went 7 innings against Penn St. last weekend. Kyle Kubat will get the ball on Sunday, hoping to do better than not getting to the fourth inning last weekend.

- Nebraska is 7-3 in their last 10 games. In those games, reining B1G Frosh of the Week Ben Miller has been hitting .444 (8-18) with a OBP of .545. Blake Headley is .368 (14-38) in the same time frame. Headley and Pat Kelly have five multi-hit games in that time frame.

- Since the start of April, Nebraska is 17-5. If the Huskers can win this set, this will mark the second time Nebraska has taken 3 straight B1G series since they joined the conference.

- Michael Pritchard has amassed 236 hits in his Nebraska career, putting him at 13th in school history. Five hits will surpass Husker great Alex Gordon for 11th all time at Nebraska. If Pritchard wishes to go past his HC, Darin Erstad, he'll have to get to 262 hits. That would put him at 4th all time in school history.

Nebraska's RPI according to Warren Nolan is 43. Michigan State is sitting around 101. A sweep by Nebraska would solidify second in the B1G standings behind Indiana and match anything Illinois does this weekend against Iowa, as they defeated the Hawkeyes 4-1 yesterday.
