How to watch Northwestern-Nebraska: TV, radio, streaming, betting line

The battle of NUs pits two teams that have combined to win one of their past 13 Big Ten contests.

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Northwestern David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the coldest teams in the Big Ten face off tonight in Lincoln as Northwestern (12-12, 3-10 B1G) visits Nebraska (14-11, 4-10).

The Cornhuskers beat Minnesota on Wednesday to snap a brutal seven-game conference skid. Nebraska had a promising start to the 2018-19 campaign, with wins over Seton Hall, Clemson, and Creighton, but Big Ten play has not been kind to Tim Miles’ squad. The Huskers also lost Isaac Copeland and his 14 points per game to an ACL injury against Ohio State on Jan. 26.

Nebraska has struggled to put the ball in the basket of late, but they still have James Palmer Jr. and Glynn Watson Jr., who combined for 37 points in a 70-55 win over Northwestern at Allstate Arena last season.

The last time NU traveled to Lincoln, the Wildcats were victorious, 73-66, with Dererk Pardon and Vic Law combining for 28 points.

Here’s how to tune in:
