Lincoln – Husker volleyball fans can get their first look at the 2014 squad on Saturday, Aug. 23, when the Huskers hold the annual Red/White Scrimmage at the Bob Devaney Sports Center beginning at 7 p.m..
Tickets for the Red/White Scrimmage will go on sale beginning Wednesday, July 23, at 8 a.m. Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets online at Huskers.com, and they are also available by visiting the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Office during business hours (8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday) or calling 800-8-BIGRED.
Public ticket prices for the scrimmage are set at $10 (reserved seating) and $8 (standing room only). UNL students will receive free admission to the Red/White Scrimmage, but ticket quantities are limited and students must secure a ticket in advance on Huskers.com beginning in early August.
Current season ticket holders wishing to attend the Red/White Scrimmage will need to purchase separate tickets for this match, and purchase information was included in season-ticket invoices sent earlier this summer.
The Huskers welcome back six starters and three All-Americans from a team that went 26-7 and reached the NCAA Regional Final in 2013. The returnees are led by sophomore All-American outside hitter Kadie Rolfzen, who averaged 3.46 kills per set in 2013, and had 13 double-doubles. Other returning All-Americans include junior setter Mary Pollmiller and junior middle blocker Meghan Haggerty. Nebraska also welcomes a four-member recruiting class that was ranked 11th nationally by PrepVolleyball.com.
The Red/White Scrimmage is the best chance to experience Husker volleyball at the Devaney Center. Nebraska will enter the 2014 season with a streak of 200 consecutive sellouts dating back to 2001, and it is likely that the 2014 season will be sold out in advance of the season opener against Florida State on Friday, Aug. 29.
In 2013, Nebraska led the nation with a school-record 8,175 fans per match in its first season at the newly-renovated Devaney Center. The average was the highest for any college volleyball program in more than 15 years.
