The (3-3) Florida State Seminoles took on the undefeated (5-0) Nebraska Cornhuskers Sunday afternoon in the Donald Tucker Center, for an ACC, Big Ten face-off.
Today’s game made the second meeting between both schools. FSU defeated Nebraska, 100-84, on Dec. 31, 1982 at the Hurricane New Year’s Classic in Miami, Fla.
Florida State is coming off a home lost to Louisville on Friday night, 85-76. Senior post Cierra Bravard scored a career-best 27 points on 8-of-12 shooting and 11-of-11 at the line, but it would not be enough to take down the Big East powerhouse.
Nebraska defeated the Florida A&M Rattlers Friday night, 72-64 in the Al Lawson Center.
The Seminoles lead for the entire first half, and up until the 6:00 minute mark of the second half. Nebraska was able to tie the game for the first time of the afternoon at 52-52. The Cornhuskiers took the lead at 5:56 with a three-pointer by Brandi Jeffery to make it 52-55 Nebraska.
