The No. 10 Nebraska volleyball team returns home this week to host Iowa and Northwestern in the final regular season matches of the 2012 season. The Huskers will also honor their five seniors- Lauren Cook, Paige Hubl, Gina Mancuso, Allison McNeal and Hannah Werth- following Saturday’s match.
Nebraska leads the all-time series with Iowa, 15-0. The Huskers beat the Hawkeyes 3-0 in their first match-up of the season on Oct. 17 in Iowa City.
The Huskers lead the all-time series with Northwestern 4-1. Nebraska fell to Northwestern last season in a 3-1 battle in Evanston.
Fans can also listen to all of the action this weekend with John Baylor and Lindsay Peterson on the 25-station Husker Sports Network, including B107.3 FM in Lincoln and The Wolf 93.3 FM in Omaha. Fans outside the state will also be able to catch the live audio feed for free on Huskers.com.
In addition, the Nebraska volleyball program will join the annual U.S. Marines Toys for Tots Drive for the Northwestern match on Saturday. Husker fans are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to the game, and cash donations for the cause will also be accepted. The Marines will be stationed near entrances throughout the NU Coliseum to accept donations that will brighten the holiday season for needy children.
