No. 1 Michigan Takes Tight Series at Nebraska

Sierra Lawrence, who hit a two-run homer in the top of the seventh Saturday for insurance runs in No. 1 Michigan's 4-1 win over Nebraska, crushed a two-run, seventh-inning home run again on Sunday (video via Twitter) to give the Wolverines an 8-6 lead, which held up. Michigan thus took the series two games to one, after Nebraska had taken Friday's opener.

As fervent a Michigan fan as I am, even I don't think the Wolverines are the No. 1 team in the nation. It's going to take more than the one series loss Florida suffered last week to Alabama for me to believe the Gators should be dethroned.
