Like the Huskers, the Creighton Bluejays will head for San Antonio.
A Creighton win Friday over Louisiana–Lafayette and a Nebraska win over Baylor will make for a "Dream Matchup" and "Battle of Nebraska" in the Alamo City Sunday.
In December, the Jays blasted the Big Red 82–67 in Omaha...
It's nice to think that matchup will happen, but both teams come off losses and just want to win their next games.
NEBRASKA IS UP THERE DOING THE SAME THING AND COACH MILES IS DOING A TERIFRIC JOB WITH THOSE GUYS AND SO ITS EXCITING TO HAVE THAT POTENTIAL MATCHUP IS AN EXCITING THING FOR THE ENTIRE STATE BUT WE CAN'T LOOK PAST OUR MATCHUP AND THEY CAN'T LOOK PAST THEIRS SO AS EXCITING AS IT WOULD BE TO SEE THEM IN THE THIRD ROUND WE BOTH GOT TOUGH MATCHUPS AHEAD OF US THAT WE HAVE TO PREPARE FOR AND I'M SUREH THAT'S GOING TO BE THEIR NUMBER ONE FOCUS AND ITS OURS AS WELL.
YOU'LL SEE A LOT OF CREIGHTON FANS AND NEBRASKA FANS TRAVELING DOWN AND WE HAVEN'T EVEN MENTIONED IOWA STATE FANS, THEY ARE REAL CLOSE, TOO SO YOU KNOW I THINK THEY SENT A LOT OF CLOSE TEAMS CLOSE AROUND EACH OTHER TO GO DOWN THERE AND I THINK THEY'RE; GOING TO ENJOY IT AND THERE'S A LOT OIF MUTUAL FRIENDS WITH CREIGHTON, NEBRASKA AND IOWA STATE FANS SO I THINK ITS GREAT FOR THIS REGION.
The Jays fell to the Providence Friars 66–58 in the Big East championship game at Madison Square Garden Saturday night, but by getting the 3 seed, it seems it didn't hurt them that much.
