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

It was a fun weekend (mostly) to watch sports. The Superbowl was a great game, and Nebrasketball got an overtime win vs Wiscsonsin. The Husker women stumbled against a ranked Michigan team - they played well, but couldn’t get the points they needed at the end. To top off the weekend, the Jackrabbit men and women both defeated the USD Coyotes. Sweet!

What did you think of that Superbowl ending?
