Nebraska and Penn State share Big Ten Championship with 19-1 conference records

 

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Nebraska and Penn State each earned a share of the Big Ten Volleyball Championship after both schools posted victories Saturday night in their regular-season finales. Both the Huskers and the Nittany Lions finished with a 19-1 conference record.

 

The Cornhuskers claim their second consecutive Big Ten title and third overall, following a sweep of Iowa. The Huskers finish the season with a 26-4 overall record and a 19-1 mark in conference play, marking their best conference record since joining the Big Ten.

 

The Nittany Lions claimed their 17th Big Ten title and their first since 2013, following a 3-1 victory at Minnesota. The Huskers earn the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament by virtue of their head-to-head victory over Penn State on Sept. 22.
