In a battle of No. 1 vs. No. 2, it was the second-ranked Stanford Cardinals who was victorious 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-17, 25-16) over the top-ranked Nebraska volleyball team in front of a school-record crowd of 8,632 at the Devaney Center on Wednesday night.
The defending national champion Cardinals (6-1) never trailed in sets one and three and led almost the entirety of the fourth set. The Huskers fought back from down eight in set one to get within two points late, and NU won a back-and-forth second set that had five lead changes before Stanford took control of the match in the final two sets.
Nebraska is back at home on Saturday, hosting Wichita State at 3 p.m. at the Devaney Center.
