Before the football team tries for a huge road win this weekend, Nebraska’s top-ranked women’s volleyball team picked one up Friday night.
The Huskers beat No. 11 Penn State in a five-set thriller on the road. The Huskers won the last two sets to earn the victory, including a 15-11 win in the deciding fifth set.

Nebraska is now an impressive 21-1 on the season, and in a prime position to be the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, with just seven matches left in the regular season. The Huskers only loss of the season came against Ohio State on Oct. 1.
The Big Ten is currently dominating the AVCA coaches poll. The conference has seven teams in the top 25, including the top three — No. 1 Nebraska, No. 2 Minnesota and No. 3 Wisconsin.
