Purdue makes its first trip to Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports


Today is Purdue's first trip to the new Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, and Nebraska might be the hottest team in the Big Ten. Nebraska has won six of their last season and are improbably clawing their way to the NCAA Tournament bubble. Purdue is headed in the opposite direction, as even winning out in the final five games would likely not be enough.

It is clear that Nebrasketball is no longer something to be mocked. It is to be feared, especially int heir new arena where they have lost only once in Big Ten play, and that was by a single point in the closing seconds to Michigan.
