In the fourth, the Huskers capitalized on a UTEP error, scoring five unearned runs. Unzicker reached on an error and stole second. Edwards drew a walk to put two on with no outs. UTEP retired the next two batters but a wild pitch allowed both runners to get into scoring position. Ferrell drew a walk to load the bases. Walljasper singled to score two runs. With a pair on, Owen homered to extend the lead to 10-1.

In the fifth, Carson Fischer and Edwards drew back-to-back walks to lead off the inning. Ybarra reached on a fielder's choice and all the runners reached safely after an error on UTEP.
