Nebraska slides to No. 4 in national poll after loss to Wisconsin

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska volleyball’s time as the No. 1 team in the nation was short-lived.

Last Wednesday, the Huskers fell to conference rival Wisconsin in three sets.  It was the Huskers’ second loss of the season.

Nebraska has now moved down to the No. 4 spot in the American Volleyball Coaches Association poll.

Wisconsin moved up to No. 3, while former Big 12 rival Texas claimed the No. 1 spot.

On Sunday, the NCAA D1 Volleyball Committee announced its top 10 teams for games played through Saturday.

Nebraska was ranked third in that poll, while Wisconsin sits in the seventh spot.


Prior to the loss to Wisconsin, Nebraska hadn’t dropped a single set since the beginning of October, when they dropped one to Maryland.

The Huskers did bounce back after last week’s loss to sweep Maryland at home.

Nebraska will return to the court when it faces Indiana on Wednesday at the Devaney Center.
