The Cardinal defeated the Huskers in the NCAA Championship match last December in Minneapolis, 3-2. The two teams will meet this regular season on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. This marks the second straight year the Huskers will begin the season at No. 2.

Minnesota (1,414), Texas (1,385) and Wisconsin (1,329) rounded out the top five. The Huskers return five starters from last year’s team, including first-team All-America middle blocker Lauren Stivrins.
