The “Nebraska” on the front of the jersey was red, outlined in white, as were the player numbers. There also were red accents on the shoulders, waistband and shorts. See the uniform in this post.

Wednesday night went much better than Tuesday night for the Big Ten, as a 4-2 showing salvaged a second-consecutive tie in the Challenge. Overall, this was a good result for the conference, but the discussion at the end of the night focused on who to blame for the Big Ten’s failure to outright win the thing.
The Big Ten went 4-2 in the second night of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, which led to a 6-6 tie between the two power conferences. No. 1-ranked Michigan State fell to North Carolina, 79-65, while Ohio State, Wisconsin, Purdue and Nebraska all had impressive victories Wednesday night.

The Big Ten will enter Wednesday’s second and final night of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge trailing 4-2, and needing to win five of the six remaining games to take the annual event. Here’s our preview and predictions for Wednesday’s Challenge games.
