It is finals week, but there are a couple of big upcoming events for Husker sports fans. One, of course is the volleyball team’s match against Penn State tomorrow. Two titans of the sport, the Big Ten co-champions, the team that only lost once all season and the team that handed them that loss. It doesn’t get any better than this.

The men’s basketball team also plays Kansas this Saturday. The Jayhawks are reeling after two straight losses and have to travel to the Vault. Patrick will have more in his preview, but this is one that Nebrasketball has a chance to steal.
