Nebraska will debut a new adidas alternate uniform vs. Southeastern Louisiana at 7 p.m. ET tonight on BTN (watch on BTN2Go). The design is a nod to the past, bringing back the script “Huskers” and using the school’s scarlet and cream color scheme. Cream is almost always a nice touch on alternates, and this is no exception.

BTN analyst Jon Crispin: A few words on Badgers, Hoosiers & Spartans

First impressions in the world of college basketball can often be deceiving, especially with questions surrounding the quality of many unknown non-conference opponents.
