StatSheet projects Nebraska to make the NIT as a three seed, as long as they finish with a winning record. The Cornhuskers are ranked #76 in the StatSheet StatRank, and their NIT bid will hang on their 10-9 overall record and 1-5 record in the Big Ten.
During the last four games, Nebraska grabbed a win against Penn State but also suffered losses to AP #18 Michigan State and AP #5 Michigan and a bad loss to RPI #112 Purdue.
Nebraska is not that good against top competition, with a 1-7 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes an 0-6 record against the RPI Top 50 and an 0-5 record against AP ranked teams. While the Cornhuskers have no quality wins, they're weighed down by two bad losses including RPI #112 Purdue and RPI #175 Kent State.
