Huskers can't make it in time to play Creighton

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska's baseball game against Creighton scheduled for Tuesday night at TD Ameritrade Park has been cancelled because of the Cornhuskers' travel issues.

Nebraska spokesman Jeremy Foote said the Huskers' problems started in East Lansing, Mich., on Monday. Their 4-1 win at Michigan State was shortened to seven innings because of delays caused by rain and a shooting near campus. The team's flight to Chicago was canceled because of inclement weather.

After an overnight bus trip to Joliet, Ill., the Huskers spent a few hours at a hotel. Another bus that was supposed to take the team to Omaha was two hours late, making it impossible for the Huskers to make it to the ballpark on time for the Creighton game.

The Huskers won two previous games against Creighton this season.
