A Boiler of a battle brewing
Lincoln native KK Houser and Purdue met Lindsey Moore's Huskers twice last season, and together the games lasted five overtimes. NU won in three overtimes in West Lafayette, Ind., and Purdue won in two OTs in the Big Ten tournament final. “They were really crazy,” NU's Jordan Hooper said.

LINCOLN — The original was a classic. The sequel didn't disappoint. Part three is at 1 p.m. Saturday — and the only Big Ten women's basketball game on CBS this year.
Nebraska and Purdue have met twice in their histories. But it's already a rivalry with five overtimes. Three extra periods in NU's 93-89 win at PU last year. And two more in the Boilermakers' 74-70 win in the Big Ten tournament final.
