ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Road wins are always tough to come by in the Big Ten, and won’t get any easier for Michigan when they travel to Nebraska today, as the Wolverines will be looking for their fifth straight win and to stay unbeaten in conference play.
“Looking at Nebraska, we’re seeing a team with incredible potential and talent,” Michigan coach John Beilein said. “(Nebraska coach Tim Miles) has done a good job of putting this roster together. There is a collection of transfers, junior college players, foreign players that are really as talented as I’ve seen.
“It’s the first Big Ten home game in their new arena. I expect a sellout. And we are going to play our absolute best game. If we get a win at Nebraska, it would be a really high level win for us.”
A road win for Michigan (10-4, 2-0 Big Ten) would keep the Wolverines atop the Big Ten standings, but despite Nebraska (8-6, 0-2) sub-par conference record, Beilein says he’s not looking past the Cornhuskers on his schedule.
“We know down the road we’re going to have games that are going to be back-to-back-back nationally ranked teams, many of them might be on the road, can’t even think about it. Just got a – Nebraska,” Beilein said.
Tip-off is scheduled at 9 p.m. on ESPN2.
