Michigan snapped the Huskers' seven-game winning streak with a 2-1 win Sunday afternoon in Lincoln.

The Wolverines (9-2-1, 3-1-1 Big Ten) put up two quick goals in the second half. At the 53:30 mark, Madisson Lewis broke through the defense to bring the ball up the left side, using a ground cross to Nkem Ezurike to score the game’s first goal, her seventh goal of the season.

Four minutes later, a deep throw-in led to Michigan's second goal as the ball bounced off multiple Husker defenders before Lewis knocked the ball in past NU goalie Emma Stevens.

Nebraska (9-3-1, 4-1-0 Big Ten) fought back and scored at 74:01 off a crossing pass from Courtney Claassen to Jordan Jackson and she headed the ball into the net. Jackson's 30th career tally moved her into a tie for eighth all-time at Nebraska with Nikki Baker.

Michigan out-shot Nebraska by a 15-13 margin as both teams amassed four shots on goal. The home loss for the Huskers was the first of the season. They remain atop the Big Ten standings after Penn State lost to Minnesota.
