Northwestern takes on Nebraska in a game that's actually sorta kinda important. No, seriously.
Recently, I'd been filling my Saturday afternoons with stress free awesome college basketball, but now I guess I have to spend some of them watching Northwestern and freaking out. Fun!
It's actually sort of a big one for the Cats, as we explained yesterday. But it won't be as easy as we're making it out, so we all should be watching and stuff.
On the plus side, this game is on ESPNU, because they've literally given up even pretending they don't just lump all their contractually obligated lower-tier Big Ten basketball team appearances together by showing as many Northwestern vs. Nebraska/Penn State/Iowa games as they can. I'm not sure whether that's them selecting Northwestern vs. Nebraska because they figure they can kill two birds with one stone or the Big Ten Network being like "nah, you can have this", but either way, it always seems to pan out.
Game's at 2 p.m. on the U, as noted. Come watch, and hopefully your hangover's gone.
Go Cats and stuff!
