Some thought Saturday’s NCAA volleyball national championship match would feature the two programs with the most titles, Stanford and Penn State, each with seven. But Florida and Nebraska had a different idea.
The second-seeded Gators and fifth-seeded Cornhuskers both won five-set matches on Thursday in the semifinals and will play in the championship on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
The Huskers are four-time NCAA champions; Florida seeks what would be the first title both for the Gators and the SEC. Nebraska leads their series 8-3; the Huskers won both previous times they met in the NCAA tournament, in regional finals in 2001 and ’05.
Nebraska earned its eighth all-time trip to the NCAA Championship match after a thrilling 3-2 win against top-ranked Penn State on Thursday night. The Huskers rallied from down in sets, 2-1, and were up against match point in set four before staving off elimination and rallying for a five-set win. The Huskers, in the midst of their third straight trip to the final four, will play for the school’s fifth national title against a Florida Gators squad that is making its second NCAA Championship appearance and is seeking its first national title.
From locker room dancing to Halloween practice high jinks, John Cook from time to time will indulge the playfulness of his team.
The coach thought he’d thrown them another bone in Kansas City when he posed for a holiday portrait — the players crouched in front of a Christmas tree with Cook reclined at their feet, head propped on one arm.
Just when he thought the bit was done, his phone started lighting up. Senior Kelly Hunter had cropped Cook out of the photo and pasted his prone pose on other backgrounds. That’s a new one, Cook thought, as the memes bounced around the team’s group chat.
