The meet will take place on Saturday, March 23 in Jenison Field House and will be split into afternoon and evening sessions. The No. 2-seed Huskers (9-3, 5-2 Big Ten) are slated to compete in the evening session at 5 p.m. CT alongside Michigan, Minnesota and Penn State. Illinois, Iowa, Ohio State and Michigan State will compete in the afternoon session at noon CT.
