Memorial Day weekend is here officially, and that means another three games in Columbus. Tonight's marquee game is between Indiana and Purdue. The Big Ten made sure we did not play during the regular season and I have no idea why the schools didn't arrange an out of conference meeting in Indianapolis. Those happen all the time across college baseball, but ah well.
As usual, all three games today are being broadcast by Big Ten Network, and two more teams will be eliminated by the end of the day. Nebraska and Ohio State are facing off in the first game, with the winner being forced to come right back and play Michigan State for the right to play tomorrow against tonight's loser.
Friday schedule (all games televised on Big Ten Network):
Noon: No. 4 Nebraska (35-22) vs. No. 6 Ohio State (32-26) (elimination game)
3:30pm: No. 5 Michigan State (36-20) vs. Previous game winner (elimination game)
7pm: No. 2 Indiana (31-26) vs. No. 1 Purdue (42-12)
