The Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball team just keeps on rolling with a Big Ten opening sweep, while a former Husker got some very good news.
10-0. A very special Nebraska Cornhuskers season just continues to roll right along.
John Cook’s squad is still undefeated overall and now has started the Big Ten season 1-0 thanks to a straight sets sweep of #21 Ohio State.
It was the Huskers first sweep of the Buckeyes since 2019 and John Cook’s squad is now off to its best start to a season since 2016. That season ended with Nebraska in the NCAA Champioships. We’ll ignore they lost to Texas to finish the season.
Merritt Beason was once again one of the heroes with a match-high 14 kills while hitting .478. The junior opposite hitter also added eight digs and a pair of aces. Bergen Reilly led the way with 36 set assists as the Nebraska Cornhuskers had very little drama until the third set.
They had to rally 25-14, 25-16 and then 25-21 in order to close out the 3-7 Ohio State squad.
