How to watch Northwestern vs. Nebraska: Game time, TV channel, live online streaming, radio, betting line, preview

The Wildcats look to get back on track.

NCAA Basketball: Northwestern at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

After a disappointing 70-66 loss to Minnesota in front of a packed Welsh-Ryan Arena, the Northwestern Wildcats (12-4, 1-2 Big Ten) are on the road to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers (9-6, 3-0 Big Ten) in Lincoln.

The hosts have been one of the biggest surprises of the conference season. After an uninspiring 6-6 non-conference slate that included a loss to Gardner-Webb, the Cornhuskers are currently in first place in the conference with wins at Indiana, at Maryland and most recently against Iowa in double overtime. Tim Miles has a talented backcourt duo at his disposal: Tai Webster leads the team with 17.7 points per game and Glynn Watson Jr., a 46.4 percent three-point shooter, is right behind him at 15.2 points per game. Both have taken their games to the next level in conference play, too, averaging 20.7 and 25.7, respectively, in the three Big Ten games. Ed Morrow Jr., a Chicago product (Simeon) is the only other player averaging double digits (10.3 per game). He also leads the team with 8.3 rebounds per game.

For Northwestern, knocking shots down from the outside is absolutely necessary. But if the perimeter players are not hitting from downtown, Dererk Pardon could be a force. The last time he was at Pinnacle Bank Arena, in his second career game, Pardon scored 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
