Husker Softball Team Loses Late Lead

The Nebraska softball team was three outs away from a sweep of Northwestern before the Wildcats rallied for a 5-3 win in the series finale Sunday at Bowlin Stadium.

The Huskers led 3-0 after three innings, but Northwestern scored the game’s final five runs, including three in the top of the seventh.  NU had a five-game winning streak snapped to fall to 25-19 on the year and 12-5 in the conference.

The Huskers will host Creighton Tuesday night.
