Lincoln The Nebraska Athletic Department and NET Television announced Wednesday that seven Husker volleyball matches will be aired on the network during the upcoming season.

The first of NET’s seven broadcasts will be shown Saturday, Sept. 20, as third-ranked Texas visits the Nebraska NU in the Huskers’ Big  12 home opener. Other Big 12 matches on the 2008 schedule include clashes with Kansas (Sept. 24), Baylor (Oct. 15), Texas A&M (Oct. 22), Iowa State (Nov. 1) and Missouri (Nov. 12) along with the Huskers’ non-conference matchup with Creighton at the Qwest Center in Omaha on Sunday, Oct. 5.

All of the Huskers’ matches will be carried on NET-1 (Ch. 12) and also shown in high definition on NET-HD (Ch.  112 on most cable systems across the state).  Five of the matches will also be carried live nationwide on the CBS College Sports Network (Ch. Ch. 613 on DirecTV and Ch. 152 on Dish Network). NET’s broadcast team of Larry Punteney and Kathy Weiskamp will bring fans all of the action.
In addition to the seven matches produced by NET, the network will also pick up both Husker matches in this weekend’s AVCA Showcase in Omaha.

Wednesday’s announcement means that volleyball fans will be able to see the Huskers on television 12 times during the regular season. Nebraska’s matches against Oklahoma (Oct. 8) and at Texas (Nov. 19) will be shown live on ESPNU, while the Huskers’ contest at Missouri on Oct. 12 will be shown exclusively on Fox Sports Net, as all three matches were included in the Big 12’s announcement of the conference TV schedule.

Tickets for this weekend’s Runza/AVCA Showcase are on sale at the Qwest Center box office and at Ticketmaster locations around Nebraska. Fans can call Ticketmaster in Lincoln at (402) 475-1212 or in Omaha at (402) 422-1212 or visit Ticketmaster.com. Single-match tickets for each day will go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m.
