Nebraska volleyball and its fans laid claim last night to the world record for the largest attendance at a women’s sporting event.
The attendance of 92,003 surpassed the previous record of 91,648 fans who watched a soccer match in Spain last year. The Huskers posted their fourth straight sweep to open the season, beating Omaha 25-14, 25-14, 25-13.
NU coach John Cook called it “a magical night.” The event began with Wayne State beating Nebraska-Kearney 3-0 in an exhibition match.
Nebraska plays its first road match of the season on Sunday, when the Huskers visit Kansas State. First serve is set for 4 p.m. The pregame begins at 3 on News Talk 900 KJSK.
