Following a bye on Wednesday night, the No. 3 Nebraska volleyball team will look add to its 15-match winning streak Saturday night in Manhattan, Kan. The Huskers are set for a 7 p.m. match with the Kansas State Wildcats at the Ahearn Field House.
The Huskers are the only remaining undefeated team in conference play this season, while Kansas State is tied for seventh with a 3-5 record. The Wildcats started the Big 12 season with wins over Kansas and Texas Tech, but have hit a tough stretch lately as they’ve been swept in their past three matches by Oklahoma, Texas and Iowa State.
Saturday night’s match will mark the 82nd all-time meeting between the two Big 12 North Division programs, with Nebraska holding a 78-3 advantage in the series.
The Huskers won 58 straight matches from 1975 to 1998, before Kansas State won a five-set match in Lincoln during the 1999 season. The Wildcats’ two other wins came in 2003 when they swept the season series.
