Since Jan. 23, Nebraska has fewer losses than Duke, Michigan, Wisconsin, Creighton, Kansas and Syracuse. Just to name a few.
The Huskers are 10-2 during that span. Most impressive is the way that Tim Miles' team has handled pressure. Not just the heat of breaking a 16-year NCAA tournament drought. But crunch time in games.
