Current Records: Michigan 5-3; Nebraska 5-4

What to Know

The Michigan Wolverines are 8-1 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Tuesday. The Wolverines and Nebraska will face off in a Big Ten battle at 7 p.m. ET at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Michigan will be strutting in after a win while Nebraska will be stumbling in from a loss.

The San Diego State Aztecs typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Michigan proved too difficult a challenge. Michigan strolled past the Aztecs with points to spare, taking the game 72-58. Center Hunter Dickinson was the offensive standout of the matchup for Michigan, dropping a double-double on 23 points and 14 rebounds.

Meanwhile, the Cornhuskers lost to the Indiana Hoosiers on the road by a decisive 68-55 margin. Guard Bryce McGowens had a rough day: he finished with only eight points on 3-for-14 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.

The Wolverines are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Nebraska's defeat took them down to 5-4 while Michigan's victory pulled them up to 5-3. We'll see if the Cornhuskers can steal Michigan's luck or if Michigan records another win instead.
