COLUMBIA, Mo. - - No. 14 Missouri finished a three-game sweep of Nebraska with a 7-3 victory on Sunday at Taylor Stadium. It was MU's first three-game sweep of the Huskers since 1996.
The Tigers conclude the regular season with a 37-17 record and a 16-11 mark in the Big 12 Conference. They will be the fourth seed in the Big 12 Conference Championship, which begins on Wednesday in Oklahoma City.

The Huskers scored once in the top of the fourth and Mizzou again answered with two runs in their half of the inning, as junior Kyle Mach scored when junior Ryan Lollis grounded out and Folgia crossed the plate on a single from sophomore Aaron Senne.
Mizzou again answered a NU run in the top of the sixth by scoring twice in the bottom of the inning, as both runners scoring on Folgia's fourth home run of the season.
