I believe Michigan can clinch a spot in the tournament with one win over Nebraska either tonight or Saturday.

Illinois beat Minnesota today, and evidently the Illini have now clinched a spot in the Big Ten tourney. Michigan needs a win either tonight or tomorrow against Nebraska or a loss by MSU tomorrow to get in. The Wolverines are currently trailing the Cornhuskers 5-2 in the top of the 4th.

Michigan couldn't complete the comeback and fall to Nebraska 9-6. The Wolverines need a win tomorrow or an MSU loss tomorrow to secure a Big Ten tourney berth. The Michigan-Nebraska game tomorrow is at 1:00 ET and will be broadcast on the BTN. MSU's finale vs. PSU is also scheduled for 1:00 ET.

Logan McAnallen (3-2; 3.18 ERA) is the Michigan starter today, and he's had some good outings lately, while Nebraska is sending Tyler Niederklein (1-1, 5.11 ERA) to the mound, so at least on paper the pitching matchup seems favorable.

The only other thing to watch today is the Illinois-Minnesota game. If Michigan wins and Minnesota loses, then Michigan will be seeded 5th in the BTT and Minnesota 6th.
