The #10 seeded Nebraska Cornhuskers (24-7) are hoping for a different outcome today against the #2 Texas Longhorns (27-1) after losing on their home turf to the Big 12 team during the 2020 NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight round. The Regional Final takes place on the 40 Acres at 9PM CST with the victor advancing to the Final Four in Columbus, Ohio for December 16 play. After a near upset loss to the #15 Washington Huskies (26-5) on Thursday evening, the Longhorns showed grit and perseverance in a historic comeback after being down two sets and clinching three straight to proceed in the tourney.

This Texas team is comprised of five returning All Americans; a back-to-back AVCA Southwest Region Player of the Year, Logan Eggleston; the nation’s second ranked service game (2.23 aces per set) and boast the most efficient hitting (.347) in the country. The runner-up Big Ten champion Cornhuskers lead the all-time series against the Longhorns (32-24) with Texas winning the last two matchups. Nebraska hasn’t played in Austin since 2015.

The Final Eight teams play today in four regions across the country.  A Texas win propels them to face the winner of the 7PM CST game between #4 Wisconsin (28-3) and #12 Minnesota (22-8).  Rounding out the other regions in today’s play: #3 Pittsburgh (29-3) vs. #6 Purdue (26-6) at 3PM CST and #1 Louisville (31-0) vs. #8 Georgia Tech (26-5) at 5PM CST.
