NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome one and all to Rivalry Week In Nebraska. This is the time of year that the Cornhuskers of Nebraska take on the Bluejays of Creighton on the hardcourt.

This year we have Nebraska coming into the matchup with a 7-0 record. Creighton is #15 in the nation and sits at 5-1 with their only loss to a fiery Colorado State squad.

Last season the Huskers pulled off the upset in Omaha winning 63-53. A game that saw Nebraska take control early and slowed the game down to where Creighton lost control and allowed the Huskers to pull off the win.

Creighton leads the all time series 29-27 over Nebraska. Can the Huskers bring that to a one game lead this season?

We will see this Sunday.
