Following a career-high 7 shutout innings and 10 strikeouts in Nebraska’s 6-1 series-opening win over Minnesota last Friday, Cade Povich was named Big Ten Baseball Pitcher of the Week. He is the first Husker pitcher to be tabbed for the award since Nate Fisher on March 11, 2019.

In four starts this season Povich has totaled team highs with 22.0 innings pitched and 32 strikeouts.

The Huskers have earned a player-of-the-week award for two-straight weeks, as Cam Chick was named Big Ten Player of the Week last week.
