Notes:

- Even though the Sunday starter is listed as TBA, put the farm on Kyle Kubat being that starter unless something happens.

Nebraska's RPI heading into the weekend at Warren Nolan's site is 41. Penn State's is 214. A series win needs to be the aim this weekend, if not a full blown sweep. Northwestern had a RPI of 224 a couple weeks ago when they took the series at Hawks Field. With Indiana basically being a lock for the tourney with a RPI of 2, Nebraska needs to keep winning to get the second B1G bid into the NCAA tourney.

- Chance Sinclair is leading the B1G in ERA, at a paltry 1.66. Second place in that category is Cam Vieaux of Michigan State with a 2.06 mark.

- Nebraska is 7-3 over their last 10 games, with a 2.90 ERA. Opponents in that time frame have a 5.74 ERA. Husker bats have hit .310, opponents have hit .275.

- In that 10 game time frame, Michael Pritchard has hit .475 (19/40) with 7 doubles and 10 RBI's. Blake Headley has gone .421 (16/38) with a OBP of .477 and 3 doubles along that time frame.

- Penn State enters this game on a nine game losing streak, with 6 of those games being on the road. Their 2 mid-week games this week were cancelled. The losing streak includes losing 2 of 3 to Ohio State, and sweeps by Minnesota and Illinois.
