The Nebraska Baseball team was selected to participate in the Corvallis Regional hosted by Oregon State. The Huskers who earned an at large bid into the NCAA Tournament are the 2nd seed and will face off against Yale in a first round matchup. Nebraska and Yale are set to faceoff at 3:00 Friday, with coverage available via ESPN3.
Nebraska gave Oregon State all it could handle earlier this season in Surprise. If OSU gets tripped up, it will be NU doing it.— Kendall Rogers (@KendallRogersD1) May 29, 2017
The Huskers who finished their regular season with a record of 35-20-1 (16-7-1 Big Ten) advance to their third regional in the last four years. The Huskers who went 0-2 last season in the Clemson Regional will look to advance out of a regional for the first time since 2005.
Nebraska will need to get Jake Meyers back from an injury to have a chance. With Derek Burkamper pitching well, the Huskers could have Meyers face off against a talented Oregon State club in a potential winners bracket battle.
Nebraska did face Oregon State earlier this season, dropping a pair of games against the Beavers. Nebraska was toppled in the Pac 12/Big Ten Challenge by scores of 10-1 and 5-2 earlier in the season.
You can see why Oregon State is the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.
