Husker BaseballLincoln, NE – The Huskers earned a regional host this year after winning 40 games.  The regional teams are #4 seed Eastern Illinois, #3 seed Oral Roberts, and the #2 seed University of California Irvine Anteaters.  The Anteaters were the crowd favorite last year in Omaha who went 2-2 and lost to the eventual champion Oregon State in the semi finals 7-1.

The Huskers open the regional on Friday with the #4 Eastern Illinois Panthers at 1:05pm.  The game will be televised on NETV in Nebraska and will be carried on CSTV throughout the country.

The Huskers will send Dan Jennings to the hill in place of the usual Friday starter Johnny Dorn and save Dorn for the Saturday matchup with either Oral Roberts or UC Irvine.  Johnny has been lights out this season and would be better utilized against ORU or UCI since Eastern Illinois is one of the few teams with a losing record in this year’s postseason (27-28).
