The spring transfer portal window has closed for football. There is one more day for graduate transfers, but it’s essentially over if players want to transfer which is good news for Nebraska football.

Nebraska football did lose two more players from its roster on Tuesday as quarterback Jack Woche and linebacker Korver Demma each added their names to the transfer portal. Both players were on the roster last season but didn’t play a snap and neither was on scholarship.

As it stands, the only player projected on two-deep that Nebraska football lost this spring was EDGE/LB Chief Borders. With all of the tampering pointed out by head coach Matt Rhule, that’s a win for the Huskers. A big win.

Nebraska basketball adds center from transfer portal

Speaking of transfer portal wins, Nebraska basketball scored one on Tuesday. 7-footer Braxton Meah committed to Fred Hoiberg and the Huskers.

Two years ago, he was an All-Pac-12 defender and made 70 percent of his field goal attempts. He should do wonders for rim protection and rebounding. Plus, if he’s healthy, he’s a starting-caliber, high-major big.

The Huskers now have two scholarships to work with after making five additions total from the portal with Andrew Morgan, Meah, Gavin Griffiths, Connor Essegian, and Rollie Worster.

Nebraska baseball falls to Creighton again

There were some positive moments for the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Tuesday night in Omaha, but the Huskers made some key mistakes early and weren’t able to overcome them in a 9-5 loss to Creighton.

Ty Horn got the start for Nebraska baseball but didn’t even make it out of the first inning before giving up six runs on six hits. Josh Caron got Nebraska on the board in the first inning with an RBI double. Caron had two hits in the loss. Rhett Stokes and Clay Bradford also notched home runs.

Nebraksa will be back in action Wednesday night against Kansas State. The first pitch goes out at 6:05 PM CST. The game will be on BTN+. The radio call is on Huskers.com.
