Well the official numbers say they drew a whopping 1761 fans to the night game with the hometown team. That could feel like an ok crowd in a nice small college stadium, but would feel tiny even at a Lansing Lugnuts game, let alone in an MLB stadium.

Yeah, that was a bit disappointing. I wonder how well they would draw in Chicago? I imagine there 1- 2 million BIG alumni here.

Looking bad for Nebraska, this may end tonight with the favorites on top.

Spoke too soon, awesome comeback by the Huskers. There could be a game tomorrow.

Probably the same way it draws in Minnesota.

It's not like these alumni flock out to Northwestern to watch their teams when they come to town.

Indiana wins it in walk-off fashion. Hopefully the Hoosiers host a regional next week.
