Corn Flakes: Big Win for WBB, Super Bowl Overtime, and Boneless Wings

The Husker women get their biggest win since joining the Big Ten

What a game by the Husker women!

I was annoyed with the Clark countdown box on the screen for the entire game. Even though it would have been fun to have her break the record in a loss, I’m glad she didn’t get it against the Huskers.

A court storming shouldn’t be shared with the other team for any reason.

WBB Tweetcap

Thousands of Iowa fans came to Lincoln and a national TV audience tuned in to watch the Caitlin Clark show. The Husker women didn’t appreciate being the undercard...

I LOL’d at this tweet.

I also thought the Husker women were in a whole bunch of trouble when they started the fourth quarter down 14 points.

Trev Alberts needs to write up a court storming protocol.

I held my breath as those two Hawkeye threes were in the air.
