Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska Women’s Gymnastics Team will travel to East Lansing, Michigan for a three-to-ten conference tri-meeting with Michigan State and Ohio State. The Huskers, Spartans and Buckeyes will meet at Jenison Field House on Saturday, January 30 at 1 p.m. The meeting is streamed on BTN +.
The Huskers last took on Penn State on the road last Saturday, where they took home their first win of the season in a hard-fought victory. Nebraska surpassed the Nittany Lions by a score of 195,250-195,100. NOW led by a beam trio of Kynsee Roby, Makayla Curtis and Kaitlyn Higgins, who all took home part of the event’s title in the final rotation.
Ohio State lost its first two meetings of the season against Michigan and Iowa and looks to pick up this year’s first win. Michigan State has not yet competed in 2021, as its first meeting against Maryland last weekend was postponed.
Nebraska was originally scheduled to face only Michigan State on Saturday. However, due to a change in the Ohio State schedule, the Buckeyes were added to the meeting, raising stakes for the event.
NOW looks to build on the drive it gained from its near-victory last week and leave Jenison Field House with two major Big Ten Conference wins.

ROBY RANKED NO. 21 ON THE BALANCE BELM
Senior Kynsee Roby, after stardom performances against Illinois and Penn State, ranks 21st in the nation on the apparatus. Roby won at least a share of the title in Nebraska’s first two meetings and looks to build on the strong foundation she has laid so far in 2021.
