No. 5 Nebraska dominates Indiana

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tenth-ranked Nebraska finished a weekend sweep and picked up its fifth consecutive dual win in a 33-6 rout of Indiana at the Devaney Center on Sunday afternoon.

After the Hoosiers forfeited the opening match at 125 pounds, the Huskers (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) won each of the next four to build a 21-0 advantage at the halfway point. Eric Montoya (133) earned a 12-4 major decision against Alonzo Shepherd in the second bout before eighth-ranked Anthony Abidin (141) added bonus points with his dominating 18-1 technical fall against Sean Brown.

At 149 pounds, Justin Arthur and Trevor Moody entered the third period deadlocked at zero before Arthur earned a reversal from the down position and tacked on a point for riding time in a 3-0 triumph for the Huskers.

Three-time All-American James Green (157) earned three takedowns as he cruised to an 11-4 decision against Luke Blanton. Austin Wilson (165) and Brandon Wilbourn (174) each dropped decisions to ranked Hoosiers, but NU swept the final three bouts, which included No. 20 Aaron Studebaker’s first-period pin of Jake Masengale at 197 pounds.

Sophomores TJ Dudley (184) and Collin Jensen (HWT) each picked up decisions. Dudley used an early takedown and near fall points to build a lead and never looked back in a 6-0 win against Matt Irick. Jensen also dominated from start to finish in his 7-2 triumph against Garret Goldman.

MLB in Omaha game brings back fond memories for former College World Series stars — and creates new ones

The first MLB game ever played in this state — Royals vs. Tigers — was designed to serve as something of a lead-in for the College World Series, and a bridge between the big leagues and the college game. A multi-level celebration of the game. There was pomp and circumstance and a full house and all eight CWS teams lining up around the infield before the game, with a player from each throwing the ceremonial first pitch. Great visual.
