The Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball team set a world record for attendance at a women’s sporting event on Wednesday night in rather impressive fashion.
The Nebraska volleyball team’s big night was the biggest night in the history of the sport. Of course, we knew that was going to be the case when tickets first went on sale.
What wasn’t confirmed until the intermission between the second and third sets of the match was whether the Nebraska Cornhuskers had set the world record, eclipsing a couple of US Women’s Soccer team games.
The match between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Omaha Mavericks had the nation watching and marveling at the spectacle involved. Everyone probably should have also been marveling at how good John Cook’s team is.
Not long after setting the world record with an official attendance of 92,003 fans, the Huskers went on to take care of business and swept the in-state rival in three sets, 25-14, 25-14, 25-13. That meant that while Nebraska improved to 4-0 on the season, they still haven’t lost a set yet this season.
Now that Volleyball Day in Nebraska is over, John Cook’s squad will move on and focus on their big goal for the rest of the season, which includes another National Championship run. Next up, they’ll take on the Kansas State Wildcats on Sunday.
