    ESPN Features Husker/Boilermaker Series

    "I think we'll get 20,000 fans combined for the three games," said Pritchard of the series, which will be played in Lincoln. "It's going to be out of control. It's going to be fun to play in a series that matters this much." Third-place Nebraska (25-13, 7-5) would tie Big Ten leader Purdue (29-5, 10-2) if they are able to sweep the series. Then again, Purdue has won nine games in a row and hasn't lost a series all year. The most interesting matchup will be Purdue's pitching -- best in the conference on the basis of its 2.91 ERA -- against Nebraska's offense, which ranks No. 1 in the league (7.7 runs).
    6. No. 17 Purdue (29-5, 10-2 Big Ten, No. 10 RPI) at Nebraska (25-13, 7-5 Big Ten, No. 71 RPI)
    Haymarket Park, Lincoln, Neb.

    When the Cornhuskers went to Ohio State and won two of three, the stakes got raised for this series. Although the Big Red don't have a great RPI, this is their chance to make a huge impression on the selection committee. Two great offenses face off as Purdue hits .324 (No. 6 nationally) and the Huskers hit .317 (No. 10). The pressure falls on Purdue, since mid-major teams aren't given much rope for weekend losses in games they are favored to win.

    And with that SINGLE article, ESPN has provided more Big Red Baseball coverage than the Journal Star, World Herald, and Grand Island Independent combined.

    The B1G are mid-major teams?

    That has nothing to do with your original statement. I don't read the World Herald or the Grand Island Independent, but as far as the Lincoln Journal Star is concerned, there has been plenty of coverage about the Husker Baseball program this season. Weather it has been good coverage or not is a different topic.

    It was sarcasm. I apologize if it offended you. Looking through the Journal Star site, I am beginning to notice that Husker Max has been bad about linking their articles to the baseball page.

    Can usually count on at least the local paper doing some stuff... 93.7 The Ticket down here in Lincoln talks a lot of baseball and basketball too (especially with the new coach and the visits from higher-quality recruits recently). I tune in some days after lunch to see what's going on. http://www.theticketfm.com
