Nebraska Volleyball Opens NCAA Tournament Play Against Campbell

The 10th-seeded Nebraska volleyball team (21-7) begins postseason play this weekend, welcoming Big South champion Campbell, Florida State and Kansas State to the Devaney Center, Dec. 3-4, for the NCAA First and Second Rounds. The Huskers open with Campbell in a first-round matchup on Friday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.

On Saturday at 7 p.m., the winner of Friday night’s Campbell-Nebraska match will meet the winner of Friday’s 4:30 p.m. first-round contest between Florida State (19-9) and Kansas State (15-12).

Nebraska was selected as the No. 10 overall seed for the NCAA Tournament Sunday night and make their 40th straight NCAA Tournament appearance this weekend — second most in NCAA history, behind only Penn State (41).

Louisville, Texas, Pitt and Wisconsin received the top four seeds from the NCAA Tournament Committee. Should those teams all advance past the first weekend, they would host an NCAA Regional the following weekend. Nebraska is in the same region as Texas along with No. 7 national seed Kentucky and No. 15 Washington. The Huskers would have an opportunity to host an NCAA Regional only if they advance past the opening two rounds and Texas and Kentucky were upset in the first or second round.

• Entering the weekend, Nebraska is 118-34 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers rank second in NCAA history in postseason wins and winning percentage (.778).

Campbell is 21-9 on the season after capturing the Big South title for its first NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. The Camels carry a five-game win streak, having swept four of their last five opponents.
