The Big Ten only had one game on Saturday and it ended with an easy win for the Big Ten. Let’s take a look at that matchup.

Game of the Day:

-Nebraska Cornhuskers 73, Western Illinois Leathernecks 49

After falling to Texas Tech earlier this week, Nebraska entered this game looking to get back on track. And the Huskers got a great opportunity to do just that with a team well outside the top 200 on KenPom coming into campus.

Ultimately, Nebraska grabbed a 73-49 win in a game that was never all that competitive. Glynn Watson and James Palmer led the Huskers with 39 combined points. Isaiah Roby also finished with nine points and seven rebounds.

Nebraska improved to 5-1 with the win and now will prepare for a road trip against a ranked Clemson team next Monday. This will be another key opportunity for the Huskers to finally win against a quality opponent away from home.
