LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska secured its first top-10 win in four years after upsetting No. 7 Vanderbilt on Friday.

Nebraska beat Vanderbilt 5-3 in the first game of the Cambria College Classic at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The Huskers haven’t beaten a top-10 team since 2019 when they defeated Texas Tech in the Frisco Classic.

Second baseman Max Anderson and center fielder Casey Burnham led the Huskers with three hits.

All of Burnham’s three hits were doubles.  In total, Nebraska’s offense had eight doubles against the Vanderbilt pitching staff.

Emmett Olson threw five strikeouts and gave up three runs in six innings for Nebraska.  Shay Schanaman closed the game out, throwing three strikeouts and allowing one hit.

The Huskers have now won four straight after sweeping South Alabama last weekend.

Nebraska will now go on to play Hawaii on Saturday at 3 p.m.  The Huskers will face another top-10 opponent on Sunday when they play No. 4 Ole Miss.
