The Nebraska Cornhuskers will begin their stretch run against two opponents who are currently within one game of the Huskers in the Big 12 standings, starting tonight game with Texas A&M.
The Aggies are 5-7 in Big 12 play, just one game behind the Huskers. NU enters this game in a tie for sixth place with Oklahoma State at 6-6, with OSU owning the tiebreaker with Nebraska.
Nebraska is looking to move above .500 through 13 league games for the second time in four years. NU was 7-6 with three Big 12 games left in 2005, but dropped all three to finish 7-9 in conference play.
