Lincoln - On Friday afternoon the Big Ten Network announced that it has used one of its four “Wildcard” slots to broadcast Nebraska baseball’s regular-season finale on Saturday, May 18 with the Michigan Wolverines live on BTN. The announcement marks the fourth time that the Huskers will be shown on BTN this season and it will be the 12th TV game for the Huskers this year.
