Week 1 Volleyball Recap: Nebraska Falls
Penn State moved to 3-0 and took home the Carolina Classic Championship by defeating Campbell, Villanova, and North Carolina all in straight sets to take their winning streak to 105 matches. And in case you were wondering…that is the second longest win streak in DI team sports history behind the 137 straight victories by the Miami men’s tennis program from 1957-1964. The Nittany Lions haven’t lost since September 2007!
The biggest upset of the weekend, was #2 ranked Nebraska (1-1) losing to #13 Florida (2-0) in five sets at home yesterday (Florida also beat #9 Iowa State in the tournament). But that wasn’t the only upset of the weekend, #12 Michigan also fell to unranked Toledo in the final of the Rocket Classic in hard fought five game match. Other teams in the top 25 that lost to unrankeds: Arizona and Saint Mary’s. New rankings should come out tomorrow.
