Frosted Flakes: Another loss to Creighton and Volleyball Makes the Final Four

Nebraska sports saw highs and lows this weekend

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Big weekend for Nebraska volleyball as they make it to the final four for the third time in a row. They take on Penn State. A team they beat earlier this year in College Station. No one is quite sure what they did to dominate so well the first time as Penn State is always hard, especially at home. Hopefully the Huskers will do the same this time around.

Nebraska men’s basketball suffered another loss to Creighton on Saturday. A team they haven’t beaten since the Eisenhower administration. Okay, that last part I made up but it seems like forever. On to Kansas....
