Huskers eliminated from chase for the National Championship
Just over, the Huskers were eliminated in a thrilling 8-7, 11 inning loss to Arizona State. I listened to the game at my desk at work and watched bits and pieces on the company plasma screen TV. What an exciting game! I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska, the home of the College World Series, and attended many a game in my youth. If you like baseball, a trip to Omaha in June is well worth it. The Huskers had a shot at winning the game. A 3 run homer in the top of the ninth by Adam Gerch put the Huskers ahead 7-5. But, they weren't able to close the deal and the Sun Devils tied the game up in the bottom of the ninth. Great year for the Huskers, finishing 57-15, ranked 3rd in the nation for most of the year. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!!!
