Their overall record doesn’t look like much, but the Husker baseball team is sitting pretty in second place in the Big Ten as conference play resumes this weekend. With a 5-1 mark in the league, Nebraska sits a game back of unbeaten Indiana. This weekend, the Huskers face one of the league’s bottom feeders as they travel to Iowa City to face the Iowa Hawkeyes in a three-game series. The Hawkeyes are 1-5 in Big Ten play. Nebraska took two out of three from Iowa last season in Lincoln. They are trying to win three consecutive conference series in the same season for the first time since 2008. Christian Deleon, Ryan Hander and Tyler Niederklein are the scheduled starting pitchers for the Big Red. First pitch for tonight’s series opener is set for 6:05. Game two is scheduled for 1:05 on Saturday, and game three gets started at the same time Sunday.
