Michael Woodworth went 5-7 to lead a Connecticut offense that collected a season-high 22 hits in a 16-1 elimination game rout of Nebraska yesterday. 

The Huskies scored in all but two innings and finished with a seven-run ninth.  They avenged an 8-5 loss to Nebraska on Friday.  Colby Dunlop allowed five singles and one run in an efficient, career-long eight innings.  NU starter Reece Eddins gave up four runs on ten hits in 4 1/3 innings.  Angelo Altavilla had two of the Big Red’s five hits.  The Huskers, who finish at 32-24, had dropped into the elimination bracket after losing 6-5 to Oklahoma State on Saturday night.  Connecticut went on to beat Oklahoma State 5-2 last night to force a winner-take-all game with the Cowboys this evening.
