Huskers head to NCAA Lexington Regional

By  | 

The fifth-seeded Nebraska volleyball team will face Colorado at 1 p.m. (CT) on Friday in the Lexington Regional at Kentucky’s Memorial Coliseum. The match will be streamed online at ESPN3.com. Friday’s start time may be delayed if the 11 a.m. match - No. 4 Kentucky vs. No. 13 BYU - goes long. The winners of Friday’s matches will meet in Saturday’s regional final at 3 p.m. (CT). That match will be televised on ESPNU and streamed on ESPN3.com.

The Big Ten champion Huskers are making their 23rd regional appearance in the last 24 years and are aiming for a third straight final four appearance, which would be a first in program history. Nebraska is no stranger to Lexington, as the Huskers won an NCAA Regional there in 2015 to advance to the final four, where the Huskers ultimately won the national title in Omaha. In that regional - which Kentucky was not part of - NU swept BYU in the regional semifinal and beat Washington 3-1 in the final.

The Husker matches this weekend will be on Husker Sports Network radio affiliates, including 107.3 FM in Lincoln and AM 590 in Omaha. A live audio stream will be provided at Huskers.com and on the official Huskers app. John Baylor is in his 24th season doing play-by-play for the Husker volleyball program. Lauren Cook, a former All-America setter for the Huskers, will provide color commentary.
