What to Know

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Nebraska Cornhuskers are set to square off in a Big Ten matchup at 6:30 p.m. ET Jan. 29 at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this matchup.

The Scarlet Knights came up short against the Maryland Terrapins on Tuesday, falling 68-60. Four players on RU scored in the double digits: guard Geo Baker (16), guard Ron Harper Jr. (16), guard Caleb McConnell (11), and center Clifford Omoruyi (11).

Meanwhile, Nebraska came up short against the Wisconsin Badgers on Thursday, falling 73-65. A silver lining for Nebraska was the play of guard Bryce McGowens, who had 23 points.

Barring any buzzer beaters, RU is expected to win a tight contest Saturday. But bettors beware: they are only 3-8-1 against the spread when favored.

RU is now 11-8 while the Cornhuskers sit at 6-14. The Scarlet Knights are 4-3 after losses this season, Nebraska 3-10.
