NU Softball Wednesday DH Canceled

The 13th-ranked Nebraska softball team will be off this week, as Wednesday's scheduled doubleheader with North Dakota State has been canceled.


The doubleheader was canceled at the request of North Dakota State officials due to missed class time. Unplayable home field conditions have forced the Bison to travel for all of their games this season, including all scheduled home conference games.


The canceled doubleheader marks the first missed games of the season for Nebraska, which is off to the best start in school history at 30-4. The week off will give the Huskers time to prepare for a key Big 12 series this weekend with No. 8 Texas at Bowlin Stadium. The Longhorns are the only undefeated team in league play, as Texas is 4-0 in Big 12 action this season, while the Huskers are third in the standings with a 3-1 mark. The Longhorns are also riding a 15-game win streak.


First pitch between the Huskers and Longhorns is set for 2 p.m. on Saturday at Noon on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased on the day of the game at the Bowlin Stadium ticket office located at the main entrance behind home plate, by calling 1-800-8-BIG-RED or by visiting
