The top two teams in the Big Ten volleyball standings will face off Friday night. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will play at Penn State University in a matchup of top-15 nationally ranked teams. Nebraska enters the contest ranked 10th in the nation, while Penn State sits at 13th.

Neither team has lost a Big Ten Conference match this season. The Huskers and the Nittany Lions are the only teams that remain undefeated in Big Ten play. This is the ninth straight year Nebraska has started at least 3-0 in Big Ten Conference play.

After falling out of the top ten in the national rankings for the first time since 2017, the Huskers have hit their stride with four straight wins. They’ll face a stiff test on the road against a Penn State team enjoying a six-game winning streak of its own.

The first serve is set for 6 p.m. CST with the Big Ten Network televising the game.
