Two top teams will battle on national television this afternoon as Maryland and Nebraska face off in their second Big Ten Conference game of the season.

Nebraska is coming off a 72-69 loss at Minnesota that saw the Huskers lose a 17-point lead although they suited only seven players. Things are better today as Connie Yori will be suiting up 10.

Maryland will be playing their first ever Big Ten road game. They come off a 87-78 win over Ohio State.
