#20 Nebraska has clinched the B1G regular season, and as there is no B1G tournament, they get the automatic B1G bid.

IU is one game down to Maryland and UM.  Maryland comes in as probably the hottest teams in the B1G having taken 2 of 3 from UM last week-end.  UM goes to Nebraska for 3.  So the last weekend finds the top 4 B1G teams playing each other.  Too bad the championship is not on the line.

IU is still just in the NCAA field, but must do well v. Maryland or go home.  IU starter Tommy Sommer will not start, but is available for short stints.  He has a fingernail problem, and he was knocked out early in his last 2 starts v. Nebraska and UM.John Modungo, a freshman, will start the series instead at 6:30 PM.  He is 3-1 on the season with four starts and 15 appearances and a sparkling 2.08 ERA.  Brown and Bierman will start Saturday and Sunday at 2PM and 1PM respectively in their usual places in the rotation.

All three games are on TV on the B1G Network.  If you can't get the channel, the games will all be on radio.  You can't link to the radio broadcast by googling IU 2021 baseball schedule and scrolling down to the Maryland games and tapping the "Listen" function.

The whole season comes down to this series.  Many predicted that IU would win the B1G and be one of the best teams in the Midwest and East, if not the best.  But it has not been so.  IU has lots of pitching which is crucial for long runs in the tournament.  So if the Hoosiers can get in the tournament, they do have what it takes for a long run with a fresh start to salvage their season.

Games are on BTN+ 

Thanks for the write up though. Win 2 of 3... we are safely in.

Lol OSU and NW on BTN..  neither team a chance to make the tourney. 

A RANKED Maryland team vs the best program in the conference. With both teams a very good chance to make the tourney is on BTN+... you just cannot make up how much the B1G flat out doesn't care about baseball.
