A daily dose of what’s new in Husker Nation from Monday through Friday:
- While it’s been and up and down first season for Darin Erstad, Nebraska baseball swept the Minnesota Golden Gophers in their final homestand. The three-game streak couldn’t have come at a better time as it appears Nebraska will squeak their way into the Big Ten tournament as a result, tying Michigan State for fourth place in the conference. The Huskers improve to 32-19 (12-9) as a result of the victories.
- Nebraska men’s basketball coach Tim Miles continues to work as if he’s gunning for the Employee of the Month award. Big Red Roundball’s head man secured the signature of Texas Tech transfer Terran Petteway. Husker fans won’t get to see Petteway on the court this season as he’ll have to sit, but he’ll have three seasons of eligibility remaining following next season.
- BTN’s Tom Dienhart slotted Brion Carnes as the No. 9 backup quarterback in the conference.
- Former Husker Aaron Green makes his transfer as official as it can get choosing the TCU Horned Frogs as his new team.
- Using College Football Live’s top 25 as a ranking metric, Dan Vasta projected what every ranked team would wish for if they had the chance to chat with a genie. He predicted the Huskers would like nothing more than consistency through the air.
- Prized cornerback recruit Charles Jackson has apparently made his way to Lincoln.
