Due to unplayable field conditions in Omaha, the 19th-ranked Nebraska softball team will host UNO for the second time this season, this afternoon with a first pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m. at Bowlin Stadium. For fans who have had to deal with cancellations and postponements this spring, the game will be free. Husker season-ticket holders will have their seats reserved, while other seating will be available first-come, first-serve.
Wednesday’s game will wrap up the two-game season series between the state’s two public Division I schools. UNO is in its second year of transition from the Division II to the Division I level. The Mavericks have played a full Division I schedule this year, posting an impressive 22-3 record. UNO has won 14 of its last 16 games, with losses to No. 16 Washington and No. 20 Nebraska. The Mavs had both their original and rescheduled home game with Nebraska canceled, as UNO has seen its first seven scheduled home games canceled.
Nebraska and UNO met last Tuesday in Lincoln, with the Huskers rallying for a 3-2 victory.
