The Husker Volleyball team has moved.

They've played in the NU Coliseum since the 70s, but five months and $20 million later, the Devaney Center is now their new home.

"It's really nice. Husker Volleyball deserves a place like this. It's really nice and I love it," UNL student, Keegan Geisinger, said.

The center used to be home to both men and women's basketball, but they've moved too, to the new Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The renovated Devaney Center has nearly 8,000 seats and 70 suite seats. It's believed to be one of the only volleyball-specific college arenas to have them.

"It's pretty cool," Andy Kuhn, Lincoln, said.

"Oh I think it's beautiful. We used to attend all the basketball games here so it's exciting to see the new look," Marilyn Beebee, Lincoln, said.

Two weeks ago, the women gave their new court a test-run in the annual Red/White scrimmage game against an all-star alumni team.

But on Friday, the match is serious. The Husker women are playing Villanova.

And while fans are excited and impressed with the new Devaney Center, the real story is still on the court, with fans watching and hoping for a victory.

"I think getting a win. Let's get a win tonight," Charley Hedstrom, Lincoln, said.
