Volleyball: Creighton and National Champion Nebraska Will Match Up in September

A non-conference match at CenturyLink Center Omaha against defending national champion Nebraska highlights the 2018 Creighton Volleyball schedule, announced today by head coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth.

The match versus the Cornhuskers is part of a non-conference gauntlet that will see Creighton play 11-of-12 non-conference matches against teams to win 21+ contests a year ago, with 9-of-12 advancing to the NCAA Tournament.

Creighton hosts Nebraska on Thursday, Sept. 6, in a 7 p.m. match at CenturyLink Center Omaha. It will be CU’s fifth match ever at the facility, and first since 2015. The Bluejays have played in front of an average of 10,840 fans in the previous four matches at the venue, including 13,081 against Cal Poly in a 2007 contest.

Creighton finished the 2017 season with a 26-7 season, capturing its fourth straight BIG EAST regular-season and Tournament titles. The Bluejays reached a sixth straight NCAA Tournament, hosting for the first time and reaching the Second Round. The Bluejays return eight letterwinners in the fall, including All-BIG EAST performers Taryn Kloth, Jaali Winters and Brittany Witt.
