The Nebraska volleyball team initially thought it would host an NCAA Regional in 2017. The committee thought otherwise. The NCAA Tournament bracket had Nebraska as the 5-seed, putting the Huskers on the road for the Sweet 16.
That round has arrived for the Big Red, who will play in the Sweet 16 this weekend. Nebraska plays Colorado on Friday at 1pm (CDT) in Lexington, Kentucky. The match can be seen on ESPN3.
The Huskers spent Thursday practicing at Memorial Coliseum on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Nebraska last played at the venue in 2015 during the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers went on to win the national championship that year.
