Winner set to face NC State in super regional.

Cade Povich and the Nebraska Cornhuskers have one last game to win to make a huge statement against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The junior left hander gets the chance to start for the Huskers as they attempt to take out the top overall seed in their own home ballpark.

Povich will come back after throwing 64 pitches in the regional opener Friday against the Northeastern Huskies. He struggled and left after his shortest start of the year. Going for the Hogs will be freshman right hander Jaxon Wiggins.

Wiggins lasted 3.2 innings his last time out against a Tennessee team that is known for their offense. The best guess is that Wiggins will get them through three or four innings if he is pitching well, and then Arkansas might try and let their fate lie in the hands of Kevin Kopps. Kopps did not pitch last night, after he got a four inning save the night before.

Meanwhile, Nebraska dons the black uniforms with a chance to win a title.
