NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Penn State vs Nebraska Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas Jayhawks are looking to get back to their winning ways with their first true road game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers today in Lincoln. Can KU avoid suffering their third straight upset?

Mike.Plank: I went to the volleyball Final Four at Sprint Center on Thursday night. My God, I forgot how awful Nebraska fans are. If I ever hear “Go Big Red” again in my lifetime it will be too soon. I hope they lose every game in every sport from here until eternity. I’m sure y’all probably want actual analysis here but I don’t really have any. KU is struggling, but Nebraska is still Nebraska, right? Kansas 82, Nebraska 74.

Fizzle406: We didn’t do predictions for the last 2 games and we are on a 2 game losing streak. That’s not a coincidence. Fans are quick to blame the Jayhawks lack of depth or guard play for their struggles but I think the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of us writers for not getting our predictions up. Kansas is walking away with this one. Kansas 89, Nebraska 69

Andy Mitts: Damn, fizzle throwing some shade my way. I'll pass the buck to a work emergency that had me working 120 hours in 8 days. But while the addition of Sam Cunliffe should help take some of the pressure off these players, early foul trouble for Dok will spell disaster for this game. I'm expecting a better performance from Mitch Lightfoot, but we'll all still be eagerly anticipating the addition of Billy Preston and/or Silvio De Sousa. Kansas 87, Nebraska 79.

dnoll5: I think KU will come out and knock the Huskers back right out of the gate. I’m pretty sure that Bill Self hasn’t been the most pleasant gentleman to be around for the past few days, and the players will respond. We go through something like this every December where Self calls the guys soft and then we win some games and the league. This year feels the most ominous in terms of threatening that trend, but I think it’ll still happen, and it starts tonight. Kansas 99, Nebraska 77.
