The Cornhuskers led for the most of the first half, but a steal and lay-up by Jackson gave the Red Raiders a 4 point advantage heading into the locker room. Tech played tenacious defense and made big shots toward the end of the game to hold on for the win.
The win improves Tech's record to 6-6 in conference play and places them in a 3-way tie for 5th place.
Up next, the Red Raiders face the 19th ranked Oklahoma Sooners in Lubbock. Tip-off is this Monday at 8 p.m. The game will be included as part of ESPN's Big Monday.
