The second-ranked Nebraska volleyball team opens the 2018 season with a pair of top-20 matches this weekend at the VERT Challenge at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The Huskers host No. 7 Florida on Friday at 6 p.m. in a rematch of the 2017 NCAA Championship match. On Saturday, Nebraska will face No. 18 Oregon at 6 p.m. The VERT Challenge is in its fourth year of its cycle. Texas will also play in the tournament this weekend.
Friday’s match will be televised on BTN and streamed at BTN2GO.com. If the 3:30 p.m. match between Texas and Oregon goes long, the Huskers and Gators will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first match, but no earlier than 6 p.m. Saturday’s match, which will be streamed at BTN2GO.com with a BTN Plus subscription, will also begin at either 6 p.m. or 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Florida-Texas match.
