LINCOLN, Neb. - After a weekend sweep against Purdue, pushing their record to .500 for the first time this season, the Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball team sits at No. 36 in the RPI, according to WarrenNolan.com.

Currently the Huskers are in second place in the Big Ten standings with a record of 11-4, an important storyline to watch – the top two teams in the Big Ten standings entering the tournament will receive a first-round bye.

Big Ten Standings

Minnesota: 7-2 B1G / 23-13 overall

Nebraska: 11-4 B1G / 19-19 overall

Indiana: 8-4 B1G / 29-8 overall

Michigan: 8-4 B1G / 22-16 overall

Ohio State: 9-6 B1G / 25-13 overall

The Huskers will take the weekend off from Big Ten play to participate in the TD Ameritrade Classic – also featuring: Creighton (No. 76 RPI), Oklahoma State (No. 73 RPI), and Rutgers (No. 57 RPI).

OTHER NOTES:


* After throwing 5.0 innings of no-hit baseball in his season debut early last week, Kyle Kubat picked up his second win of the year on Sunday – throwing 5.0 innings, allowing two runs on four hits. Through ten innings Kubat has an ERA below 2.00.

* After seeing nine batters bat over .300 in 2012, Nebraska currently only has three players above the line this season: Chad Christensen (.389), Michael Pritchard (.342), and Pat Kelly (.327).

* After losing two games last week to the hands of Nebraska, Arkansas took 2-of-3 from Texas A&M over the weekend.
