After a couple of cupcake victories against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Idaho State, the 8-1 Oregon Ducks receive a challenge from the Big Ten as the Nebraska Cornhuskers visit Eugene. Nebraska sits at 6-2, with a win at Wake Forest and another at USC, but also two home losses, against Creighton and Kent St. The Cornhuskers' win at Wake Forest was their only trip away from home thus far this season.
The two teams played last season, a 83-86 Oregon victory in Lincoln. Few returning players had a meaningful impact on that game: E.J. Sinlger scored 14 for Oregon, while Nebraska guard Dyllan Talley scored 18, including four three-pointers, and forward Brandon Ubel had 15. Nebraska leads the all-time series, 7-5.
