NU Volleyball Tickets Sold Out for 2006

For Husker volleyball, one record setting streak is guaranteed to continue this fall, as the Nebraska Ticket Office announced that the entire regular season home schedule is officially sold out.

The final tickets for the 17-home match schedule were sold Wednesday morning, and the season opener against the University of San Diego on Aug. 29 will be the 72nd straight sellout at the 4,030-seat NU Coliseum. The streak began in the 2001 season and will reach 89 at the end of the regular season.

Single-match tickets went on sale on Aug. 3, with fans camped out overnight waiting for tickets. In fact, 11 of the first 17 matches sold out within three hours of the ticket windows opening. 

For Nebraska Coach John Cook, Wednesday's announcement is an example of the unrivaled support that Husker volleyball receives from across the state.

"Our fans continue to set the bar high for college volleyball and there is no other school in the country that supports their volleyball program like that."

"When I talk to groups across the state, we talk about not only the financial support our program receives with groups like the Match Club, but more importantly, the emotional support we receive from fans across the Husker Nation. Their commitment to our program is what makes Nebraska a special place."

The Huskers, who are ranked first in the preseason CSTV/AVCA Coaches Poll, return five of their top eight players from last season's NCAA runner-up squad, including two-time All-American Sarah Pavan and Big 12 Freshman of the Year Jordan Larson.

Nebraska will host its Red/White Scrimmage and Alumni Match on Saturday, Aug. 26, beginning at 5 p.m. Tickets for the scrimmage are available on or by calling the NU Ticket Office at 800-8-BIGRED.
