The Nebraska volleyball team plays Minnesota and Wisconsin this week. The matches could determine whether the Huskers win the Big Ten championship this season.

The second-ranked Nebraska volleyball team fell 3-0 (22-25, 21-25, 22-25) to No. 13 Wisconsin on Saturday night in front of a crowd of 8,393 at the Devaney Center.

Nebraska enters this week with a 14-2 league record, which is tied with Penn State and Minnesota. Wisconsin currently leads the Big Ten standings at 15-1.

Nebraska head coach John Cook says this week has a Final Four-like feel for his team. The Huskers' match in Minneapolis on Friday is scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
