The Nebraska baseball team opened the Stillwater regional with a victory over UCONN on Friday afternoon. In that victory there were a couple of things that stood out from the rest.

1

It's the first regionals win in five years.

The Huskers beat UCONN 8-5 on Friday and that was a big win for more reasons than one. Not only did Nebraska baseball get off to the best start you can hope for in the regionals but it was the first regionals win since 2014. It's just the second postseason win in the Darin Erstad era.

Huskers showing a never say die approach

If you were one of the Nebraska baseball fans that saw Darin Erstad's boys fall behind 4-1 against UCONN you definitely weren't alone. The fight they showed after the second inning, outscoring the Huskies 7-1 the rest of the way could be a sign they're ready to make some noise in the postseason.
