Series History: Nebraska leads the all-time series 5-2, including three wins last season by an average margin of victory of 25 points per game.

Is today the day Rutgers can breakthrough with their first Big Ten victory of the season? Let’s hope so and it’s certainly one of their best opportunities of the season to do so.

Statistically, Rutgers is slightly better than Nebraska defensively and with rebounding. Neither team is strong on the offensive end and both team struggle from three-point range. However, Rutgers had all week to regroup and prepare, while the Cornhuskers are coming off a 1 point loss to Ohio State late Wednesday night.

I’ll be covering the action live from the RAC in press row and tweeting throughout from the OTB account. Let's hope for a lively crowd and lots of energy from Rutgers on the court. Join us in the comment sections during the game and let's hope for a big win! Let's go RU!
