LINCOLN, Neb. — The Wisconsin men’s tennis team (1-14, 0-2 B1G) heads to Nebraska to play the No. 65-ranked Cornhuskers (10-7, 0-2 B1G) in the finale of its six-match road trip. The match will be played inside Dillon Tennis Center on Saturday, Mar. 30 at 12 p.m. 

Here are five things you should know before Wisconsin faces Nebraska:

1. SCOUTING THE CORNHUSKERS: The No. 65-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers are 10-7 overall this season and 0-2 in conference play, with Big Ten losses coming against No. 18 Michigan State, 5-2, and No. 43 Michigan, 5-2. Nebraska has two wins over top-60 ranked opponents this season, with a 5-2 win over No. 56 Texas Tech on Feb. 25 and a 4-1 victory of No. 56 Yale on Mar. 13. The Cornhuskers boast the No. 79-ranked doubles pair in the nation of Nic Wiedenhorn and Anton Shepp. 

2. HISTORY WITH NEBRASKA: Wisconsin and Nebraska last faced off in the final match of the 2023 season on April 2. Playing inside Nielsen Tennis Stadium, the Cornhuskers bested the Badgers, 5-2. The No. 54-ranked Badgers took singles wins at matches one, two, and five, but ultimately dropped the match to the No. 49-ranked Cornhuskers on senior night. 

3. LAST SERVE: Wisconsin’s last time out, the team faced No. 18-ranked Michigan State Spartans in East Lansing. Jason Hildebrandt returned to action for his first dual of the season, but the Badgers continued to be shorthanded, with only five players ready to play. Collin Beduhn battled hard at No. 3 singles to fore a third set after winning the second, 6-2, but his opponent, Sebastien Collard, eventually bested the freshman.
