ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Nebraska men’s indoor track & field team picked up four points in the final event to come from behind and win the 2019 Big Ten Men’s Indoor Track & Field Championships on Saturday at the U-M Indoor Track Building in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Huskers earned their third Big Ten indoor title in five years (also winning in 2015 and 2016) with a 93-91 victory over runner-up Indiana in the closest Big Ten men’s indoor finish since 2003, when Wisconsin also edged Minnesota by two points (133.5-131.5).

Wisconsin finished in third place with 71 points, just ahead of Iowa and Purdue, who tied for fourth place with 70 points. The Huskers also collected a pair of individual titles during the meet, both in field events on Friday night. Freshman Mayson Conner won the high jump with a top clearance of 2.23 meters (7-3.75) while senior Elijah Lucy took the crown in the long jump at 7.67 meters (25-2).
