GAME DAY FACTS
Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-2, 0-0 Big 10)
Boston College Eagles (5-2, 0-0 ACC)
The Eagles are coming off a poor showing in Providence where they had a hard time getting anything going on either side of the ball. Now they head to Lincoln, Nebraska as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Huskers had some struggles of their own early this season, dropping games to a Big East and AAC opponent. Can BC turn things around tonight and take one on the road?

BC’s BEST CHANCE TO WIN
A road win against a Big Ten opponent would be a great confidence boost after an ugly loss in Providence over the weekend. While the offense struggled overall, a glaring hole was the bench players’ ability to produce. The Friar bench outscored the Eagle bench 32 to 8 on Saturday. They need to move the ball and get players not named Hawkins, Robinson, and Bowman involved. Even more importantly, they need to up the pressure and consistency on defense. They can’t allow the Huskers to get into the same lights-out shooting streaks that Providence enjoyed.
