Six Big Ten softball teams made the NCAA tournament, it was announced late Sunday night.
Host Nebraska won the 2016 Big Ten Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships, while Michigan and Minnesota shared the 2016 Big Ten Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Sunday.
They didn’t play in the regular season, but Michigan and Minnesota were the Big Ten’s two top teams.
Saturday night, in the Big Ten tourney final, it was No. 2 seed Minnesota topping No. 1 seed Michigan, 4-3, in a 10-inning marathon.
