Nebraska Baseball vs Illinois: Rubber Match Game Thread

Nebraska and Illinois battle today to see who will win the 2016 baseball series!

Nebraska Baseball takes on Illinois today at 12:05 pm at Hawks Field in Lincoln to determine who will win this Big Ten Conference series.

Nebraska lost the first game in the series Friday, 6-4, as the pitching staff chose to issue 3,456 walks.

Yesterday in game two, Nebraska looked hapless and horrible as the Illini took a 7-1 lead. Anyone with a brain knows that if you're going to win the conference, you have to win games at home and especially against those teams you should be beating. Homicidal thoughts disappeared, thankfully, as Nebraska stormed back late to win 9-8 and even the series.

Today's game will be streamed on Huskers NSide, which means most of us will be listening on the radio. Don't forget the Huskers app available on your phones - you can listen to live audio with an upgrade through that app.

I will be smoking my first beef brisket today. Wish me luck!

Go Big Red!!!!
