Since the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten Purdue has not lost to Nebraska. They are 3-0, winning all three games by comfortable margins. Nebraska has also never won a Big Ten Tournament game, going 0-1 last year with a loss to our own Boilers.
So, we're in the same situation in a different location as they face each other in Chicago. Purdue needs a win to have a chance at the NIT and, if a miracle run happens, the NCAAs. Nebraska's season is over with a loss. It's already been an exciting day with Illinois' heroics against Illinois and a solid Penn State-Michigan game. Let's keep the party rolling.
