The Creighton Bluejays (1-1) head down the road on I-80 to take on intrastate rival Nebraska (1-1) tonight. Following a loss to the Big Ten’s Michigan and five set win over Minnesota, the Cornhuskers dropped from 3rd to 6th in this week’s AVCA Top 25 poll.
NU and CU have gotten to know the Big Ten this weekend. Creighton lost in the finals to #10 Illinois. The Huskers were swept for the first time since 1997 when they were beat in three straight games by Michigan. The Huskers rallied in the fifth set to knock off the #14 Gophers.
Tonight’s match in Lincoln, will be played at NU Coliseum at 7 pm and will be the 121st consecutive sellout in that facility.
