Nebraska Cornhuskers volleyball star Bergen Reilly is yet another freshman who is showing that this Huskers team might be a bit different.
Harper Murray has also staked her claim on being one of the best freshmen in the Big Ten if not the country. Now Bergen Reilly has answered as she got herself a freshman of the week honor.
Reilly has been having herself quite the season and after a week in which the Nebraska Cornhuskers went 2-0 against the Big Ten, the conference is taking notice.
The freshmen setter was named freshman of the week alongside Penn State’s Jess Mruzik who was named player of the week; and Purdue’s Raven Colvin who was defensive player of the week.
Nebraska Cornhuskers near the top
Bergen Reilly might have gotten an honor to call her own, but the Nebraska Volleyball team is still right at the top of the country when it comes to rankings.
Thanks to a 2-0 week, the Huskers managed to hold onto their spot just one inch away from number 1. The latest AVCA rankings has Nebraska holding fast at number two. Since the Wisconsin Badgers are also still undefeated, the top spot isn’t up for grabs.
No changes on the depth chart
On Monday, Nebraska football head coach Matt Rhule made it clear that despite some early season struggles, left tackle Turner Corcoran wasn’t losing his starting job.
Rhule said that one of the reasons there wasn’t a change there is because Teddy Prochazka is still working his way back and isn’t entirely healthy. When the Huskers released the depth chart for Michigan, it turns out there aren’t many changes at all on the depth chart.
It’s been clear from Week 1 that the Nebraska Cornhuskers coaches don’t put a ton of stock in the depth chart. This week’s release is basically identical to the one before the LaTech game. The big difference here is that the starter at quarterback is Jeff Sims OR Heinrich Haarberg.
