In a battle between the top two defensive teams in the Big 12, the Cornhuskers upset the 13th ranked Aggies 57-48 Saturday afternoon at the Devaney Center.
Jorge Brian Diaz scored 16 points and Brandon Richardson and Lance Jeter had 10 points apiece for Nebraska. Defense was key down the stretch as Nebraska held Texas A&M to two field goals over the final 10 minutes.
The Huskers (15-5, 3-3) used a 10-1 run to turn a 42-39 deficit into a 49-43 lead, putting the game away on Eshaunte Jones’ 3-pointer with just over a minute to play.
The Aggies were the highest-ranked team beaten by the Huskers in coach Doc Sadler’s five seasons as coach. The Huskers are 14-0 at home.
