How to watch Nebraska vs. Minnesota: Live stream, TV channel, start time for Wednesday’s NCAAB game

Who’s Playing

Minnesota @ Nebraska

Current Records: Minnesota 11-9; Nebraska 6-17

What to Know

The Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Nebraska Cornhuskers will face off in a Big Ten clash at 9 p.m. ET Feb. 9 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Golden Gophers winning the first 79-61 at home and Nebraska taking the second 78-74.

The contest between Minnesota and the Iowa Hawkeyes on Sunday was not a total blowout, but with Minnesota falling 71-59 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. One thing holding Minnesota back was the mediocre play of guard Eylijah Stephens, who did not have his best game: he played for 36 minutes but put up just nine points.

Meanwhile, Nebraska suffered a grim 87-63 defeat to the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday. Guard C.J. Wilcher (15 points) was the top scorer for the Cornhuskers.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Golden Gophers are expected to win a tight contest on Wednesday. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it’s been tough sledding overall. They are 5-2 ATS in away games but only 10-10 all in all.

The losses put Minnesota at 11-9 and Nebraska at 6-17. Minnesota is 2-6 after losses this season, Nebraska 3-13.
