The Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball team is getting quite the rep in this early part of the season. Not only are they 7-3 through their first 10 games, but they're showing a fortitude that could pay off all year long.

On Sunday, with the game tied at three heading into the top of the ninth, NU took advantage of two Charleston errors to scratch across two runs and earn the sweep with a 5-3 win. It was a sweep over a C of C team that was 7-0 entering the weekend.

"Our guys just stayed in the fight all weekend,” Nebraska head coach Will Bolt said on his postgame radio show. “We had some really clutch moments from a lot of guys.”

While you'd like the Nerbraska Cornhuskers to not have to rally so much, it's already become a part of who this team is. They've also staged rallies against Baylor and Grand Canyon U as well.

Next up for the Huskers is a three-game set in Lincoln against another team with a very impressive record so far. the Nebraska Cornhuskers baseballl team will play three against South Alabama. The 10-2 Sun Belt squad is almost half way to their total wins in 2023.
