Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) — Red meets Blue in court at the CHI Health Center tonight.
The Huskers will face the Blue Jays in a volleyball match that is expected to attract thousands of fans.
The Blue Jays are having a big weekend after defeating both USC and third-placed Kentucky.
Nebraska will remain undefeated during the season, so tonight’s match will surely be exciting.
Nebraska and Clayton last met at the CHI Health Center three years ago, when the Huskers won a five-set conference.
Not only was it a great game, it also broke the record with the size of the crowd.
A crowd of 14,022 fans watched the game. This is the largest number of regular season volleyball players in NCAA history.
With so many fans expected to participate in tonight’s game, the team is making sure everyone is safe from COVID.
Participants need a mask.
Blue Jays head coach Kirsten Bernthal-Booth said he was excited to continue his rivalry.
“I think there’s a really big week in front of me. In fact, last week was really big. I played some really great teams. Nebraska is clearly an amazing team and this weekend there are three other good ones. The team is back on the home court. So there’s a lot in front of us and that’s why you do this. It’s fun. That is, we deliberately have an aggressive unconference schedule. We are all excited because we have set up, “she added.
The match will air on Fox Sports 1 at 6:30 pm, showing all sports highlights on Wednesday night.
