The 14th ranked Nebraska softball team gained a split with seventh ranked Oklahoma in Norman this weekend to open up Big 12 conference play.
In the opening game on Saturday, Taylor Edwards homered and Ashley Hagemann held a powerful Oklahoma offense to one run, in a 4-1 victory. Edwards has now tied the Nebraska freshman home run record, set by Ali Viola in 1995.
On Sunday, OU hit four home runs and Nebraska was held without a homer for the first time in 11 games. The Huskers had homered in 10 consecutive games entering Sunday, tying the school record for most consecutive games with a home run. NU was held to five hits in the loss, as the Huskers were out-hit (8-5) for a 6-3 loss.
After completing the longest road trip in school history with a 6-2 record, Nebraska returns home on Wednesday for a 6 p.m. scheduled matchup with in-state rival Creighton, where coach Brent Vigness has waited over a week to try to break the school’s all-time win record.
