Hosting Rutgers on Saturday was the right elixir for Andre Hollins and the Gophers who finally broke through with a conference win. Was that a confidence boosting win for this team? Now they head to Nebraska where they have lost a couple of close games the last two seasons. Should be interesting to see if this team is getting things back on track.

Keys to a Gopher Win

Stop Two Guys -
Terran Petteway and Shavon Shields combine for most of the Cornhusker's points. Keeping them below 30 would be beneficial

Better Execute Some Offense -
Nebraska has struggled offensively but statistically they are very good defensively, scoring will not come easy tonight. I have not been terribly impressed with our offensive execution, tonight they will need to be a little crisper.
