The sixth-ranked Nebraska volleyball team began its stretch of four straight road matches with a sweep of Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Wednesday night. The Huskers improved to 29-0 all-time against Iowa with a 25-15, 25-22, 25-13 win.

Nebraska (19-6, 10-5 Big Ten) posted its third straight win behind 12 kills from Lexi Sun, who hit .400 for the match and also added 11 digs. Sun was particularly huge for the Big Red in set two, terminating four straight kills to help the Huskers rally from down 19-14 to win the set. Mikaela Foecke added 13 kills on .344 hitting with eight digs and three blocks playing in her home state. Foecke became the eighth Husker in school history to reach 1,500 career kills with her first kill of the match.

The Huskers are back on the road at No. 15 Michigan on Saturday at 6 p.m. (CT).
