Hawkeyes at Nebraska Series Thread

I probably say this in every thread but this is another huge series for the Hawkeyes, everyone probably will since Iowa is a bubble team for the regionals. Coming into this season Nebraska was a favorite pick to win the Big Ten, instead they come into this game with a 17-23 overall record and 5-7 in conference. But their record is deceiving as 14 of their losses has been by 2 runs or less, 4 of their last 5 losses have been by 1 run and are 5-9 overall in 1 run games. Nebraska comes into this game on a 3 game winning streak while Iowa has won 8 of it's last 9 games and have a 24-13 record (8-4 conf). These are rivalry games so it should be interesting.

The game today has been moved up to a 3:30 start due to threatening weather, which also takes them off BTN. All 3 games now will be televised on BTN+, you can listen for free on the Hawkeye Radio Network or on The Varsity Network app. A couple of local stations that carry the game are am 800 out of Iowa City (KXIC) and am 1360 (KMJM) out of Cedar Rapids.

It's pretty much been a pitchers duel so far, although Iowa has had plenty of traffic on the bases, but Fullard got Iowa on the board with a solo home run. Iowa is still batting in the top of the 4th up 1-0.

Iowa can't get anything going against the Nebraska pitchers but Mazur is also doing a great job shutting them down. Heading into the B8 and Iowa still leads 1-0.

Really appreciate you posting the adjusted start time of today's game -- allowed me to tune in for the last 2 innings. Holy cow -- Mazur throwing 96 mph heat on his 96th pitch! Great win...with inclement weather this weekend, who knows if the other games will even get played.

It’s going to be a struggle for Iowa to get back in this one. Iowa down 6-1 heading to the B3. The wind is blowing out.

Man, I couldn't believe Heller left Medved in after in relief he gave up hit, hit, a failed sacrifice bunt, hit, walked in a run, and eventually let the Huskers tie it up at 3. But have to admit, his stuff got better the longer he stayed in the game. These Hawks are not a dominant team by any stretch (other than P Mazur), but this was another W which they needed....and they got.

Me too, I was scratching my head as to why he was leaving him in. But it worked, but now I'm thinking why isn't Nedved a starter?

I think he was at some point near the beginning of the season, but had some rough outings and so Heller moved him to be a middle-inning reliever.
