Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Michigan Wolverines
Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020, 4 p.m. (CT)
Pinnacle Bank Arena (15,000) - Lincoln, Neb.
Live TV: BTN (Larry Punteney, Jantel Lavender)

The Huskers face yet another stiff test when the Wolverines visit Lincoln. Michigan has spent some time in the rankings early this season and have a top notch point guard leading their attack.

Kate Cain was extremely productive to start Big Ten play but has been largely shut down the past two games (both losses for Nebraska). I expect Amy Williams wants her big center to get back on track and put the Huskers in the win column.
