Nebraska volleyball releases 2019 schedule with season opener against Creighton

Nebraska released its 2019 schedule Thursday, and it features a season opener against in-state rival Creighton and a rematch of the 2018 national championship.

The Huskers will begin their 2019 campaign on Aug. 30 against Creighton at the Devaney Center. NU will also face UCLA on the opening weekend.

Another highlight of the nonconference schedule is a match against Stanford on Sept. 18 in Lincoln. The Cardinal defeated Nebraska in five sets last year to win the national championship.

Nebraska will travel to San Diego for two matches on Sept. 6 and 7. They’ll host High Point, Denver and Loyola Marymount on Sept. 13 and 14, then wrap up nonconference play at home against Wichita State on Sept. 21.

The Big Ten schedule begins Sept. 27 at Illinois, and the Huskers will also face Northwestern that weekend. NU’s first Big Ten home match will be Oct. 5 against Wisconsin.
