Nebraska Volleyball Solidifies #1 Position

Nebraska blazed through the Nebraska Invitational tournament this weekend, sweeping St. Mary's, Middle Tennessee State, and Long Beach State, making them a solid number one. Upcoming for Nebraska is the Ameritas Players Challenge at the NU Coliseum. Nebraska will face Minnesota, Louisville, and a Cal Poly team that upset Texas this past week.

Washington dropped to #5, after losing to Texas in the AVCA Showcase tournament. Texas benefited from wins over the Huskies and Wisconsin, moving up to #7, despite their loss to Cal Poly.

Texas will be playing #4 Santa Clara and #2 Penn State this week in a tournament that will be broadcast on CSTV (if you want to watch some darned good volleyball).
