Baseball: Game Times, Starters, TV/Radio/Streaming Options As Nebraska Hosts Illinois

The number 2 and 3 teams in the Big Ten face off in Lincoln this weekend with seeding in the B1G Tournament at stake.

Your Nebraska Cornhuskers Baseball gang take on the Illinois Fighting Illini this weekend at Hawks Field at Haymarket Park for seeing and bragging rights as being the second best team in the B1G.

Indiana, who just needs one victory to claim the regular season title, will be the #1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament at TD Ameritrade in Omaha next weekend. Being the #2 seed means something though, and Nebraska could ride a big amount of momentum from winning this weekend's set into the tournament.
