- Jackson Brockett gets the nod today. Don’t expect any pitcher to go super long. We should see a lot of bodies out of the bullpen I would imagine, in preparation for next week.
- Both Brice Matthews (back) and Casey Burnham are being rested for this game.
- Thanks to Northwestern beating Iowa last night (what?!) and Minnesota winning the first two games against Rutgers (WHAT?!) Nebraska is looking like it will be either the 3 or 4 seed for the tournament next week. I can’t Imagine Iowa would lose the series to NW, so I’d bank on being the 4 seed against 5 seeded Rutgers.
