LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska's back-to-back, double-digit wins over opponents from BCS conferences have piqued the interest of what has been a generally apathetic fan base when it comes to men's basketball.
A win at Wake Forest last week and one at home over Southern California on Monday improved the Cornhuskers to 6-1, their best start since 2008-09. First-year coach Tim Miles says the Huskers will get a better read on themselves when they host 16th-ranked Creighton (7-1) on Thursday.
Nebraska has lost 10 of the last 14 meetings with its in-state rival, but won three straight against the Bluejays in Lincoln.
Creighton is a program Miles is chasing as he tries to create some momentum for the program as it prepares to move into a new 16,000-seat downtown arena next season.
