The Nebraska women's basketball team has added a Big Ten Network television appearance early in its conference schedule, and the Huskers will appear three times statewide on Nebraska Educational Television (NET) during Big Ten play in 2020.

Those four additional TV appearances came after the initial Big Ten Network announcement in September of at least five Nebraska women's basketball games being televised during the 2019-20 season.

Nebraska's road game at Michigan State on New Year's Eve was upgraded to a BTN telecast from its original designation as a BTN+ video stream. The Huskers and Spartans will tip off at noon (CT) in East Lansing on Dec. 31.

The Huskers will make their first BTN appearance of the season against Duke as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. (CT). The recently added BTN game against Michigan State will be Nebraska's second network appearance of the season.

The Big Red will be back on BTN in front of the Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd against Minnesota on Saturday, Jan. 4, at 5 p.m. (CT). The Huskers will also appear on BTN at Maryland (Jan. 16, 7 p.m.), at home against Michigan (Jan. 19, 4 p.m.) and at Wisconsin (Jan. 25, 11 a.m.).

In addition to the BTN appearances, NET will provide a statewide telecast of Nebraska's home game against Wisconsin on Thursday, Jan. 9. Tip-off for the first game between the Huskers and Badgers is set for 7 p.m. NET also will provide the production of the video stream to BTN+ subscribers for the game with the Badgers and Nebraska's other NET telecasts during the season. 

Nebraska's second statewide NET appearance will come Sunday, Feb. 2 against Ohio State. Tip-off between the Big Red and the Buckeyes at Pinnacle Bank Arena is set for 2 p.m. NU's final NET appearance will come on Thursday, Feb. 13, when the Huskers take on Penn State at 7 p.m.

At the end of the Big Ten Conference season, Nebraska's final home game against Illinois (Feb. 22) and regular-season finale on the road at Indiana (Feb. 27) could be selected for BTN telecasts. Those decisions will be made by the network late in the conference season.

All of the early round games in the Big Ten Tournament will be televised live by BTN, leading up to the championship game on Sunday, March 8, which will be televised by ESPN2.

Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos, and Illinois Director of Athletics Josh Whitman, in partnership with Irish American Events Limited, announced Monday that the 2021 Nebraska-Illinois game will be played at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. The game will open the 2021 season and will be played on Saturday, Aug. 28.

 

The Aer Lingus College Football Classic at the Aviva Stadium will be the second game in a new five-game series of college games in Dublin. The first of those games will be a season-opening matchup between Navy and Notre Dame in 2020.

 

“Playing a game in Ireland provides another way to spread the Nebraska brand, and in this case on an international stage,” Moos said. “We are always looking for new scheduling opportunities and when this was presented, Coach Frost and I decided this would be an experience of a lifetime for the student-athletes in our program.  This will also be a great trip for our fans, and knowing how Husker fans travel it will be great to see Dublin, Ireland turned Red.”

 

Nebraska was originally scheduled to play at Illinois on Nov. 13, 2021. The matchup in Dublin will be Nebraska’s first game outside of the United States since the Huskers took on Kansas State in the 1992 Coca-Cola Bowl in Tokyo, Japan.

 

“We look forward to taking our team to Ireland to kick off the 2021 season against Illinois,” Nebraska Head Coach Scott Frost said. “This will provide great exposure for the Nebraska football program and the Big Ten Conference. Our first priority for the trip will be to play a football game, but it is also going to give our players a chance to visit a part of the world most of them will not have seen.”

 

The Nebraska-Illinois game in Dublin as part of the Aer Lingus Football Classic will bring great excitement to Ireland, according to Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

 

“It’s great to see new teams getting involved in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic,” Varadkar said. “Tens of thousands of fans are expected to make the journey for each game in the series over the next five years, bringing with them a huge boost for the economy.

 

“Illinois and Nebraska players and fans can look forward to the best of Irish hospitality. The series will showcase Ireland as a location for international events and tournaments and put our world-leading tourism sector front and centre. The 2020 game between Notre Dame and Navy is fast approaching and now sports fans have another great occasion to plan for in 2021.”

 

In addition to taking on Illinois in Ireland in Week Zero, Nebraska also announced the completion of its 2021 non-conference schedule on Monday.

 

The Huskers will take on Southeastern Louisiana of the Football Championship Subdivision on Nov. 13, 2021, in Lincoln. The Huskers will play the Lions at Memorial Stadium on the previously scheduled date of the game at Illinois.  Last week, Nebraska announced that it had moved a previously scheduled 2021 non-conference game with Northern Illinois to the 2027 season.

 

Ticket and Travel Packages
Official travel and hospitality are now available for the ultimate experience which include exclusive game tickets.

The Aer Lingus College Football Series will have a very strong Irish-American influence. Not only will there be the usual college football fanfare with lots of fun events celebrating the red, white and blue including marching bands, cheerleaders and tailgating parties, but there will also be a great celebration of the close Irish-American links that are so highly valued. The teams will compete each year for the Keough-Naughton College Football perpetual Trophy, acknowledging the contribution to Irish-American society of Don Keough and Martin Naughton.

The Nebraska football team struggled to get anything going in Minneapolis, as No. 25 Minnesota improved to 6-0 with a 34-7 win over the Huskers on Saturday night at TCF Bank Stadium.

Nebraska slipped to 4-3 on the season and 2-2 in the Big Ten with the setback. The Huskers put together a 14-play, 80-yard drive early in the fourth quarter to get on the board after Minnesota built a 34-0 lead at the end of three quarters.

The Huskers went to the locker room trailing 14-0 at halftime, in sophomore quarterback Noah Vedral's first career start. For the game, Vedral completed 14-of-23 passes for 135 yards, while also rushing for a team-high 49 yards. Vedral, who started in place of sophomore Adrian Martinez, came out of the game after leading Nebraska on its fourth-quarter scoring drive.

Minnesota controlled the first half, out-gaining Nebraska 257-159. Despite trailing 7-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Huskers accounted for 124 first-quarter yards on 22 plays. Minnesota had 90 yards on just 11 first-quarter plays. In the second quarter, the Huskers managed just 35 total yards on 12 plays, while the Gophers rolled up 167 yards on 19 plays in the quarter. Minnesota needed just one completion for eight yards in the second quarter.

The Golden Gophers put the game out of reach with a trio of third-quarter touchdowns. After pounding the ball on the ground for 220 rushing yards in the first half, the Gophers opened the second-half with a play-action pass from Tanner Morgan to Tyler Johnson for a 45-yard completion to the NU 18. Four plays later, the Gophers were in the end zone on the second of three Mohamed Ibrahim touchdown runs to go up 21-0 just 2:19 into the second half.

Morgan completed 8-of-13 passes for 128 yards with one touchdown for the game. Johnson hauled in five receptions for 109 to lead the Gophers.

Later in the quarter, Minnesota took advantage of a short field to go 45 yards on nine plays in 5:16 capped by a Rodney Smith one-yard touchdown run to go up 28-0 with 3:16 left in the third.

But the Gophers were not done yet. After forcing a quick three-and-out by the Husker offense, Minnesota started at the NU 46, and Morgan completed his second 45-yard pass to Johnson of the quarter on the first play of the Gophers' two-play scoring drive, which was capped by Ibrahim's final touchdown from one-yard out with 1:41 left in the period.

Minnesota finished with 450 yards of total offense, including 322 rushing yards on 49 carries. Smith led the Gophers with 139 yards on 18 carries, while Shannon Brooks added 99 yards on 13 totes. Ibrahim finished with 84 yards on 15 attempts. Nebraska managed 299 yards of total offense, including 151 rushing yards.

The Huskers, who played turnover-free football for the second straight game, were led defensively by senior linebacker Mohamed Barry's 11 tackles, who became the 12th Husker in history with 10 or more games with double-figure tackles in his career. Collin Miller and Marquel Dismuke both added career highs with 10 stops.

Junior wide receiver JD Spielman hauled in three receptions for 59 yards on the night. Freshman wide receiver/running back Wan'Dale Robinson added a pair of receptions. Kade Warner added three receptions for 38 yards, while tight end Jack Stoll pitched in four catches for 18 yards. 

Brody Belt stepped up for the Huskers in the backfield late in the game with four carries for 29 yards, while Dedrick Mills managed 28 yards on nine carries, including a two-yard touchdown run to account for Nebraska's only score of the night.

Nebraska will enjoy a bye next week before returning to Big Ten home action against Indiana at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Huskers Ranked No. 5 in AVCA Coaches Poll
• Nebraska is ranked No. 5 in the AVCA Coaches Poll this week.
• The Huskers have been ranked No. 1 in 100 all-time polls, the most in NCAA history. The Huskers held the No. 1 ranking this season the week of Sept. 16.
• The Huskers have been ranked in the top 10 a total of 493 times, which is also the most in NCAA history.
• Nebraska has appeared in all 549 AVCA Coaches Polls since it was established in 1982. Nebraska and Stanford are the only two programs to be ranked in every poll all-time.

Three Huskers Named to Preseason All-Big Ten Team
• Nicklin Hames, Lauren Stivrins and Lexi Sun were all voted to the 14-player preseason team by the conference's head coaches. Additionally, the Huskers were picked second in the preseason poll behind Wisconsin. Minnesota was third. 
• Stivrins, a Scottsdale, Arizona native, had a breakout sophomore season to earn first-team All-Big Ten and first-team AVCA All-America honors in 2018. The Huskers' co-captain averaged 2.36 kills per set and had a hitting percentage of .421, the third-highest mark in school history and the No. 3 mark in the nation last season. Stivrins was selected to the NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team after a career-high 19 kills on .615 hitting in the championship match against No. 1 Stanford. 
• Hames, a sophomore from Maryville, Tennessee, set the Huskers to the NCAA Championship match as a true freshman. The Huskers' co-captain finished the season with 10.49 assists per set and 3.32 digs per set, along with 40 service aces, second-most on the team. Hames had 25 double-doubles during the 2018 season, which broke Jordan Larson's school record for double-doubles. She tallied a career-best 62 assists in the NCAA final against Stanford with 12 digs. 
• Sun, a junior from Encinitas, California, is Nebraska's top returning kills leader. She averaged 3.11 kills per set and 2.69 digs per set in 2018, her first season as a Husker. Sun was one of NU's top servers with 30 aces on the season, and she played a big role for the Huskers down the stretch with 19 kills and 12 digs in the NCAA Semifinal win over Illinois. 

"29,029" and "To Be Continued..."
• The 2019 Nebraska volleyball team has two slogans for the season: 29,029 and To Be Continued...
• 29,029 is the elevation in feet of Mount Everest. The Huskers, who nearly reached the peak of college volleyball in 2018 before coming up three points short against Stanford, are using the memory of that defeat to motivate them in 2019. The Huskers will play 29 regular-season matches, and head coach John Cook said the hardest part of climbing Mount Everest is the final 29 feet. "Many people say the elevation is 29,000 feet, forgetting the final 29 feet. We got to that 29,000 (in 2018). We didn't get that last 29 feet. All the bad things happen in the last 29 feet. People mentally let go, they're exhausted, they get stuck. Our whole theme is we've got to figure out how to get the last 29 feet." 
• The Huskers also have a team slogan of "To Be Continued..." in 2019. The slogan references the Huskers continuing what they couldn't quite finish in 2018 - winning an NCAA Championship. It also means carrying on the recent success of the program (four straight NCAA Semifinals appearances) and preparing to bring back the entire team for the 2020 season, as the Huskers have no seniors on their roster for the first time in program history. The ellipsis signifies the three points that separated the Huskers from a national championship in 2018.

Foecke and Maloney Leave Big Shoes to Fill
• This year, the Huskers are without two players who led the program to four straight final fours from 2015-18 in Mikaela Foecke and Kenzie Maloney. The All-Americans both graduated, leaving big production to replace at outside hitter and libero. Foecke and Maloney won two NCAA titles, two Big Ten titles and won more postseason matches than any other player in Husker history. 
• Stivrins, Hames and Sweet are among 10 returning players who are being counted on to step up for the Huskers. Jazz Sweet also returns to lead the Huskers on the right side, and sophomore Callie Schwarzenbach is back after breaking the Nebraska freshman record for blocks last season with 177. Sophomore hitter Capri Davis played a big role last year coming off the bench, and sophomore Megan Miller and Hayley junior Densberger both have a plethora of experience in the back row. 
• A group of six freshmen help offset the loss of the most decorated senior class in school history. Three of the six newcomers - outside hitter Madi Kubik, middle blocker Riley Zuhn, libero Kenzie Knuckles - were PrepVolleyball.com All-Americans and ranked among the top 40 prospects in the 2019 class. The Huskers' incoming class was ranked No. 2 by PrepVolleyball.com.  

Huskers Visit Asia in Summer of 2019
• The Nebraska volleyball team took a 17-day trip to Japan and China over the summer. The Huskers took on top professional teams from the two countries during the trip, winning about half of the sets they played. Head Coach John Cook called it "by far the best" of the five trips his teams have taken to Asia in his 20 years at Nebraska.
• In addition to the highly competitive matches, the Huskers also toured numerous sites in Asia, including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall of China. With six newcomers and no seniors on the roster for the 2019 season, the trip was a great opportunity for the team to bond on and off the court, a team that will spend the next two years playing together. 
• The NCAA allows a team to take a foreign trip every four years, and Cook has made it a habit to take his team to Asia. Previous trips have usually paid off with successful seasons. In the last four seasons following a Cook-led foreign trip, Nebraska has responded by winning three conference titles and two national championships.
• Cook took his first team to Asia prior to the 2000 season, his first as Nebraska's head coach. The Huskers responded with a 34-0 season and the program's second national championship.
• In 2006, Cook took his team back to Asia and the results were the same: another national championship. The Huskers went 33-1 following their international trip and capped the national title with a 3-1 victory over Stanford in front of 17,209 fans at the Qwest Center in Omaha.
• Nebraska went back to Asia in 2010. Although NU did not win the national title that year, it did put together a 29-3 season that included a Big Ten title. Nebraska took a No. 3 ranking into the NCAA Tournament but was upset in a four-set loss at No. 11 Washington in the NCAA Regional Semifinal. 
• The Huskers' last Asia trip in 2014 with only one senior was followed by a 23-10 season. But the following year saw that young group go on to win the program's fourth national title. 

Nebraska Fans Continue Record-Setting Consecutive Sellout Streak
• Nebraska volleyball holds an NCAA women's record 261 consecutive regular-season sellouts. 
• Nebraska led the nation in attendance in 2018 for the sixth straight year since moving into the Bob Devaney Sports Center in 2013, averaging 8,205 fans per match.  
• Nebraska has ranked in the top three nationally in attendance every season since 1990 (28 straight seasons).
• Nebraska set a new school record for attendance - 8,632 - against No. 2 Stanford on Sept. 18. 

AVCA Hall of Fame Head Coach John Cook in 20th Season at Nebraska
• Nebraska head coach John Cook is in his 20th season as the Nebraska volleyball head coach in 2019. He has led the Huskers to four national championships, nine final fours, 12 conference championships and 17 top-10 final rankings since 2000. 
• Cook has 732 career wins and is one of the all-time winningest coaches in NCAA history. Since taking over the program in 2000, Cook has led the Huskers to a nation-leading .880 win percentage in that time (571-78). 
• Under Cook, the Huskers have achieved 55 AVCA All-Americans and 19 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, both among the best in the nation. He is a two-time AVCA National Coach of the Year, earning the prestigious honor in 2000 and 2005, and a seven-time conference coach of the year, including Big Ten Coach of the Year in 2016 and 2017, his first and second Big Ten honors with the Huskers in their Big Ten era (2011-present).
• Cook is one of only four active coaches - and one of six all-time - to be a two-time AVCA National Coach of the Year and was honored in 2008 by USA Volleyball, receiving its All-Time Great Coach Award.
• Cook was inducted into the AVCA Hall of Fame in 2017, joining former Husker volleyball coach Terry Pettit in the hall. 
• Cook became the ninth active Division I head coach to reach 700 career wins in 2018.
