Hawks Down Huskers
Not often do major college baseball programs travel to Iowa City. The Hawkeyes always see perenial Big Ten powers of Michigan and Ohio State, but when a Big 12 comes to Duane Banks Field, it is a big deal. Tuesday, one-time national power Nebraska made the trip across Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes. And it will be a sad trip home for Husker fans as the Hawkeyes were victorious 5-2. It was the largest mid-week crowd of the year at the Bank, but much of that had to do with the Red Nation following and a perfect night for baseball. The win over the Huskers rates as one of the bigger wins on the season for Jack Dahm and his Hawkeye baseball team. This victory comes after a series win in Ann Arbor over the weekend, 2 games to 1.
