Since Nebraska lost last night, they will be taking on Arizona, who lost 11-10 to Tulane last night (more on Nebraska's part in a bit). Here are the particulars you need to know about today's game.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT:

If you're wondering how Nebraska got into this position, you don't have to look past the first inning, as starter Colton Howell got the his first batter out last night, then proceeded to be responsible for all eight runs the Toreros plated in the first. Howell didn't even make it out of the first, as Reece Eddins had to come in and retire the side.

The Huskers lost the game to host San Diego 17-5, allowing USD to hang 9 more through the contest. The loss was the largest margin for defeat for Nebraska since 2010.

What failed in the loss? Well, the bats did have a decent day, as Jake Meyers had a four-hit game, and Ryan Boldt & Ben Miller did score back-to-back Home Runs in the contest. However, this was all after the sixth inning, when USD had a 13-0 lead in the contest.

It's not the best start for Nebraska after last year's end to a season full of promise. There has been one issue to keep an eye on today, per Jon Nyatawa of the OWH:
