No. 44 Nebraska Huskers
The Huskers return home after splitting a double-header in Ithaca, N.Y., last weekend against Cornell and New Jersey Institute of Technology. Nebraska dropped a 5-2 decision to Cornell, but then followed with a sweep of New Jersey IT. They currently hold a 2-1 record at home and are 2-2 against ranked opponents.

The Bulldogs also enjoyed a bye week last weekend after netting back-to-back shut outs at home against Graceland and No. 55 Iowa. Drake is currently 1-2 at neutral sites and 2-4 against ranked opponents. This will be Utah's first meeting against the Bulldogs.
