The Nebraska baseball team captured the 2021 Big Ten regular-season title on Sunday afternoon with a 9-0 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes at Bart Kaufman Field. It’s the second regular-season Big Ten title for the baseball team, after it won its first title in 2017. The program has now won 12th conference titles, including eight regular-season championships.
With no Big Ten Tournament this year, the Huskers have also secured the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The NCAA Tournament Selection Show is slated for Monday, May 31, at 10 AM on ESPN2.

After winning four conference titles as a player at Nebraska, Head Coach Will Bolt secured his first conference title as a head coach in Lincoln in just his second season at the helm of the Husker baseball program.

The Huskers, who were not picked in the top six of the preseason coaches’ poll, extended their winning streak to eight games and capped a 4-0 weekend in Bloomington on Sunday, including two wins over both Ohio State and Indiana. Nebraska last won eight straight games in 2016.
