Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Purdue Boilermakers

Pinnacle Bank Arena (15,000) - Lincoln, Neb.

The Huskers and Boilermakers have played some thrillers as conference opponents. Will tonight be the same or will one team assert themselves and control the game?

I’m favoring the home team (but I would have favored the Huskers even in West Lafayette) but it won’t be easy. The Big Ten (women’s basketball) is so flat this season just about any team can win any given night.
