Nebraska Finds Creative Way To Match At Michigan After Bus Breakdown

This weekend, the Nebraska Huskers had a stellar weekend up in Michigan, where they went unbeaten against Michigan and Michigan State. This, however, did not come without some troubles off the court as their bus broke down causing the team to find a creative approach to their match against Michigan – Uber.

The Huskers started with a match at then-#10 Michigan State, taking the Spartans in four sets, destroying their perfect home match season. Following the match, Nebraska made the short drive to Michigan in Ann Arbor with no complications with their bus.

Prior to the Huskers match against the Wolverines on Sunday, the squad had to find a creative way to make it to their match due to their bus breaking down. Being in the year 2017 and having modern technology at our disposal all of the time, Nebraska ordered up some Ubers to take them to Cliff Keen Arena.

The detour in transportation did not slow down Nebraska on the court at all, as they took down the Wolverines in a three-set sweep.

Up next for the Huskers is a four-match home streak starting with Purdue and Indiana this Friday and Saturday, respectively. With this home streak, it eliminates the possibility of them having to take these drastic measures to get them to their matches.

The remainder of the season looks promising for the Huskers as they have eight Big Ten Conference matches remaining in the year. They are currently tied for first with Penn State in the league, as they both have 11-1 records. The Nittany Lions only loss on the year so far has come to Nebraska, as they swept them at home, making it the first time they were swept on their own court in nearly 15 years. If Nebraska completes the rest of their season unbeaten, they will become the outright Big Ten champions.
