The 20th-ranked Nebraska softball team won its second straight Big Ten Conference road series finishing off the Illini with a 12-3, five-inning victory Sunday at Illinois.
After rebounding from an opening loss to win a series at No. 23 Northwestern last weekend, Nebraska again bounced back from a series-opening loss to take the series at Illinois. With the win, the Huskers improved to 26-12 on the year and climbed to 5-4 in Big Ten play, moving above .500 in the conference for the first time this season.
After playing seven of its last eight games on the road, the Huskers return home this week to open up an eight-game homestand beginning Tuesday against UNO.
