LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska split a doubleheader with Michigan on Saturday to finish up its regular season.

Originally only scheduled to play one game on the day, incoming weather on Sunday pushed the team’s senior day ceremony and final game of the regular season up a day so that neither could be impacted by said weather.

The Huskers nine-game winning streak came to an end in game one when the Wolverines shut out the Big Red 2-0.

In game two, Jaxon Hallmark started the scoring with his eighth home run of the season.

Late in the game, the freshman from Millard West, Max Anderson, hit his seventh homer of the season to extend the lead to 5-0.

They ultimately won 5-3.

Nebraska’s Big Ten-only season finished at 31-12.

They secured the Big Ten conference title last weekend.

Now, Nebraska awaits the results of the NCAA selection show on Monday morning.
