After thunderstorms delayed the start of their roadtrip, Nebraska heads to Kansas City to kickoff their seven game trip against the Kansas Jayhawks. Nebraska and Kansas have not played since the 2011 season, the Huskers last in the Big 12.

Nebraska will send Max Knutson to the mound, while the Jayhawks will counter with Hayden Edwards. Knutson is coming off his best appearance of the season, allowing one run in four innings in midweek action against Kansas State. Edwards meanwhile, has allowed 25 hits in 23.1 innings, and has allowed a team high nine wild pitches.

Kansas does scare on offense, as they bat .284 as a team. Kansas has eight players who have double digit walks this season, leading to a team total of 182 free passes. Nebraska pitches so far this season have given up 178 free passes, a dangerous combination.

Kansas has four starters who hit over .300, led by Michael Tinsley. Tinsley, a junior catcher leads the team with a .370 average, and is tied for second on the team with 16 extra base hits. Nebraska will have to be careful of Tinsley and Devin Foyle tonight.

Probable Starters: LHP Knutson (0-1) vs. RHP Edwards (1-0)
