Michigan Vs. Nebraska Final Score: Michigan Gets 62-46 Road Win Against Huskers

Michigan moved to 18-7 and 8-4 in the Big Ten with Wednesday’s 62-46 win in Lincoln against the Cornhuskers.

Michigan, ranked 22nd in the latest AP poll, mustered just 22 first-half points, but even that was enough to keep Nebraska at bay. Whether it was stifling defense or sluggish offense, Nebraska opened the game 1-of-12 from the floor en route to a 15-point half.

Three Wolverines scored in double figures, led by Zack Novak’s 14 points on 6 of 9 shooting. Novak went over the 1,000-career point mark in the game, needing just six when they tipped off.. Stu Douglass had 13, and Trey Burke chipped in 12.

Michigan hit 11 of 24 three-point attempts, including three apiece from Douglass and Burke. Overall, the Wolverines were 24 of 46 from the floor, good for 52 percent.

The largest Michigan lead was 37-19, a margin that for offensively-challenged Nebraska – the Huskers rank 301st in points per game – was too much to overcome.

The loss dropped NU to 11-12 and 3-9 in the Big Ten, just one game ahead of last-place Penn State.

Michigan will get a visit from Illinois on Sunday before a six-day layoff in advance of a home showdown with Ohio State next Saturday.
