The Huskers roared back from an 0-2 deficit in the national semifinals Thursday night to force a fifth set against Illinois. A reversed call on a Nebraska challenge gave the Huskers a two-point edge in the final set at 13-11, and the Huskers held serve the rest of the way for the victory.
The set scores: 22-25, 16-25, 25-23, 25-20, 15-11.
Nebraska will face Stanford as the Huskers try for their second consecutive national championship Saturday night at 8 p.m. CT on ESPN.
