The Creighton Blue Jays and the Nebraska Cornhuskers will meet for their annual in-state meeting.
HISTORY: These two programs are separated by less than 50 miles, with the former proving to be the top dog in the state over the years. Creighton and Nebraska have met in every season since 1977, with the Blue Jays holding a narrow lead of 28-26 after winning nine of the last ten meetings.
Nebraska is favored by four here at home.
Creighton Blue Jays
Creighton has opened their season with a pair of home victories, and they now look ready to take on their first real test.
Alex O’Connell is finally being given the green light on the collegiate level, and he’s thriving early. The former Duke guard exploded for 20 points in the opener, and he is going to be the catalyst of this Creighton team that has a lot of pieces to replace.
Sophomore Ryan Kalkbrenner anchors the middle and at 7’1, he can really alter games with his size and offensive touch around the rim.
He’s joined up front by newcomer Ryan Hawkins, whose posted a pair of double-doubles already this season, averaging 11 ppg and 10.5 rpg.
Freshmen Ryan Nembhard and Arthur Kaluma round out a solid lineup, with the former averaging a well-rounded 13 ppg, 4 rpg and 6 apg.
Nebraska couldn’t avoid disaster in their season opener, but they pick up a respectable non-conference win over Sam Houston State. The Cornhuskers trailed by five at halftime, but a strong second half would lead to a 74-65 victory.
Freshman Bryce McGowens might just be the real deal. The 6’7 guard exploded for 29 points in the comeback victory, just after scoring 25 points in his debut. He’s bound to be the best player on the floor for this rivalry matchup, and he could be the reason Nebraska breaks this eight-game losing streak to Creighton.
Alonzo Verge Jr. has come over from Arizona State and given the Cornhuskers the best pair of guards they’ve seen in a while. The senior guard put up an impressive 26/13/5 in the opener against Western Illinois.
Veterans Trey McGowens and Derrick Walker both return to the starting lineup after transferring in from Tennessee and PItt respectively last season. Trey, the elder McGowens, is four on the team with 8.5 ppg.

Free Creighton Blue Jays vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers NCAAB Prediction:
Creighton has dominated this rivalry for a very long time, but the initial eye-test show a shift within the state.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Lipscomb ATS
The Blue Jays lost so much from last year’s team, while the Cornhuskers enter with their best squad in years. Head coach Fred Hoiberg has a chance to deliver in year three with a postseason bid, and a notable non-conference win here would really help their cause come March. The McGowens/Verge Jr. pairing could overwhelm an inexperienced Creighton team on the road, and we love their chances as home underdogs here.
Take Nebraska’s ML, as the tables could finally turn in the Cornhuskers favor this evening.
