Tuesday’s showdown will be the second and final meeting between the two teams this season, with the Huskers taking the first meeting earlier this season in Omaha by a score of 3-1.
The Huskers are coming off a series win at Minnesota, who led the Big Ten Conference entering the weekend. The Gophers now sit second in the standings with a 8-4 league record and the Huskers are 0.5 game back in third place with a 7-4-1 record.
The Mavericks also went on the road and won this past weekend, taking 2-for-3 from North Dakota State. UNO also split a pair of midweek games against Air Force in Colorado Springs.
