RIVERTON, Wyo. – The McCook Community College golf team finished in third place Friday after the final round of the two-day Central Wyoming tournament. Eastern Wyoming finished third with a team score of 587, Central Wyoming was second with a 616 and MCC finished 40 strokes back of the leaders in third place with a 627 score. MCC improved by seven shots over Thursday’s round of 317, but MCC Coach Tyler Loop believes Friday’s 310 was well short of what the team is capable of. “We had a better score (Friday) but we still need four good scores and we didn’t get that either day,” Loop said. Individually, Sophomore Cameron Lampe (Windsor, Colo.) shot rounds of 77 and 75 (152) to finish the tournament in fifth place. Eastern Wyoming’s George Elliot won the meat with a 143. “We had very good weather both days but sounds like the altitude played havoc with our yardages so we need to adjust better and faster. Also, putting wasn't very good at all,” Loop said.

Lincoln – In a thrilling game that hearkened back to memorable Nebraska-Colorado conference contests of old, the Buffaloes capitalized on Husker miscues to escape from Memorial Stadium with a 33-28 win on Saturday afternoon.

The Buffaloes improved to 2-0, while Nebraska lost its season opener in the closing minutes of Scott Frost’s official debut as the Husker head coach, which came in front of the 362nd consecutive sellout at Memorial Stadium.

Although miscues, including three turnovers, 11 penalties and several mistakes on special teams hurt Nebraska, the Big Red fought hard together for 60 minutes and had two shots into the end zone by quarterback Andrew Bunch from inside 25 yards in the closing seconds that would have given NU the victory.

Nebraska put up 565 total yards on Colorado, including 329 rushing yards, as true freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez (117) and newcomer Greg Bell (104) both reached the century mark on the day. It marked the first double-100-yard game by the Huskers since Ameer Abdullah (208) and Imani Cross (109) accomplished the feat against Illinois in 2014.

Martinez added 187 yards on 15-of-20 passing in his collegiate debut to finish with 304 yards of total offense. Bunch completed 4-of-9 passes for 49 yards with the game on the line in the fourth quarter to give Nebraska a chance to come back and win.

First-quarter fumbles by Martinez and Bell helped the Buffs to a 14-0 lead. Martinez added an interception in the fourth quarter, and then was knocked out of the game with an injury on Nebraska’s second-to-last offensive possession. He left with the Huskers clinging to a 28-27 lead.

The Blackshirts held Colorado to just 44 rushing yards, while recording seven sacks of CU quarterback Steven Montez – the most by the Nebraska defense in five seasons.

But Montez answered with 351 yards on 33-of-50 passing with three scores, including a 40-yard touchdown strike to Laviska Shenault on CU’s final offensive play of the game with 1:06 left to put Colorado up 33-28.

Shenault keyed the Buff offense with 10 receptions for 177 yards and added a touchdown run.

The Blackshirts were poised to secure the win before the late connection between Montez and Shenault, forcing CU into third-and-24 from its own 45. But a personal foul in the secondary on an uncatchable pass from Montez over the middle kept the Buff offense on the field.

The Husker defense was unable to force a CU turnover on the day, but the Buffs made early-season mistakes of their own as place-kicker James Stefanou missed a pair of fourth-quarter field goals wide left that could have given Colorado leads earlier in the final quarter.

In addition to the 100-yard rushing games by Martinez and Bell, Devine Ozigbo rushed 14 times for 60 yards and a score and added two receptions for 17 yards. Maurice Washington added eight carries for 34 yards as a freshman running back for the Big Red.

Senior wide receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. led the Huskers with five receptions for 75 yards, while JD Spielman added three catches for 67 yards. Junior transfer Mike Williams pitched in three receptions for 40 yards in his Husker debut.

Defensively, Mohamed Barry led the Blackshirts with 12 tackles, while fellow senior linebacker Luke Gifford contributed 11 stops, including 1.5 sacks.

Nebraska’s offense got off to a quick start sprinting 62 yards on its opening drive before Buff defensive end Mustafa Johnson forced a fumble by Bell with a big hit that was recovered by linebacker Davion Taylor to stop the Big Red’s opening drive of the season at the CU 14.

The Buffaloes answered with an eight-play, 86-yard drive capped by Jay MacIntyre’s three-yard touchdown catch from Montez to give Colorado a 7-0 lead six minutes into the game.

Another turnover stopped Nebraska’s second drive, as Martinez fumbled on his way to the ground deep inside Husker territory, setting up the Buffs with a short field. CU capitalized again with a four-play, 24-yard drive that ended with a three-yard scoring run from Shenault to give the visitors a 14-0 lead with 6:47 left in the opening quarter.

The rest of the first half belonged to the Big Red.

Martinez atoned for his early miscue by sprinting 41 yards to paydirt on Nebraska’s next drive to cap an eight-play, 75-yard march to pull the Huskers within 14-7 with 3:47 left in the quarter.

At the end of the first quarter, Nebraska owned 189 total yards, including 138 rushing yards on 18 carries, while Colorado managed 103 total yards, including 21 rushing yards on four carries.

By halftime, Nebraska carried a 21-17 lead after scoring three consecutive touchdowns before a late field goal in the final 30 seconds ended Colorado’s scoring draught.

In the second quarter, the Huskers outgained Colorado 140-36, including 105-(-12) on the ground, to carry a 329-139 edge in total yards for the half despite managing just a 21-17 halftime lead.

Martinez accounted for 86 rushing yards on eight carries with two touchdowns in the half, including his three-yard touchdown run with 2:24 left in the first half to give Nebraska its first lead of the game at 21-14. His second scoring run of the day capped an eight-play, 79-yard march for the Big Red. Martinez also completed 9-of-11 first-half passes for 86 yards.

Bell added 80 rushing yards on nine first-half carries, including a 45-yard gallop to set up Nebraska’s go-ahead score. The long first-half runs by both Martinez and Bell surpassed NU’s longest run of the entire 2017 season (40, JD Spielman vs Northwestern).

Nebraska’s 243 yards rushing in the half outdistanced the 2017 season best of 225 yards for the entire game in last year’s season opener against Arkansas State. Ozigbo added 45 first-half yards on 10 carries, including an eight-yard touchdown run with 10:15 left in the second quarter to tie the game at 14.

Nebraska returns to Memorial Stadium next Saturday to take on Troy. Kick-off is set for 11 a.m. with live television coverage on BTN. The Huskers will honor members of its 2018 Nebraska Football Hall of Fame class, including Mike Rucker, Kyle Larson, Dan Schmidt and Bob Sledge, along with Chadron State alumni Danny Woodhead and Casey Beran.

Wauneta, NE - The Wauneta-Palisade Broncos remain perfect on the year after defeating Medicine Valley by a final score 36-13.  Wauneta-Palisade would start out the game quickly scoring two quick touchdowns before Medicine Valley would score their first Touchdown of the night.  The Defense from Wauneta-Palisade though would keep Medicine Valley from scoring when the Raiders had the ball at the 1yd line in the first half, but a couple sacks and a costly delay of game penalty kept the Raiders from scoring.  As Wauneta-Palisade would give Medicine Valley the first loss of the year. Next week both Wauneta-Palisade and Medicine Valley have a Bye Week.

RIVERTON, WYO. – The Region IX golf season began Thursday with a scheduling conflict that saw golfers sharing the course. “They double-booked the golf course with our tournament and a large cross country meet,” MCC Golf Coach Tyler Loop said. MCC finished with a team-score of 317 on a hot, mild day but with all the extra traffic at the course other team scores had not been posted. “We didn’t play great but they learned a lot,” Loop said. “The course was in good shape but the cross country met was a big nuisance.” A pair of sophomores led MCC with Ronnie Quick (London, England) shooting a 76 and Cam Lampe (Windsor, Colo.) a 77. Four freshmen made their MCC debuts Thursday amidst the course chaos. Chesney Tatman (North Platte) shot an 81, KC Carlson (Delta, Colo.) and 84, Trevor Oberg (McCook) an 84. Gabe Vielma (McCook) played as an individual and shot an 81. The two-day tournament continues Friday.

OMAHA, Neb. - The No. 7 Nebraska volleyball team rallied from an 0-2 hole to topple No. 14 Creighton, 3-2 (22-25, 19-25, 25-18, 25-22, 15-10), Thursday night in front of a crowd of 14,022 at CHI Health Center Omaha. It was an NCAA record for a women's volleyball regular-season match.

Mikaela Foecke had a career-high 25 kills on .351 hitting with 13 digs, five blocks and four service aces to ignite the Huskers (5-1) after a tough start to the match. Freshman Capri Davis had a career-high 18 kills, and Jazz Sweet added 12 kills on .323 hitting for the Big Red.

Creighton (4-3) won the first set for the third time in the last four meetings between the teams. Unlike the other two times, though, the Bluejays won the second set as well to take a 2-0 lead into intermission.

The Huskers were sharp in set three, leading throughout to earn a 25-18 win and extend the match. NU used an early run to gain separation in set four and held off the Jays for a 25-22 win. In set five, Foecke accounted for nine of NU's 15 points, and she ended the match with her new career high in kills, 25, the most by a Husker since Kelsey Robinson in 2013.

After dropping the first two sets, the Huskers only trailed for one rally the rest of the match. Nebraska won 3-2 over a top-15 opponent on the road after trailing 0-2 for the first time since at No. 1 Penn State on Oct. 2, 2015.

Freshman setter Nicklin Hames had a career-best 56 assists with 11 digs, and Kenzie Maloney had a career-high 25 digs.

Nebraska had a .258 to .207 edge in hitting and out-aced the Jays, 10-6. Megan Miller had three aces to go with Foecke's four. Maloney also had a pair of aces.

Set 1: Davis posted three early kills, but Creighton got six kills on its first seven swings to go ahead 7-6. Callie Schwarzenbach got a kill and then set Foecke for a kill on her first swing of the night to make it 8-7 Huskers. A stuff by Schwarzenbach and Sweet, followed by another kill by Davis and back-to-back Creighton errors gave the Huskers a 13-9 lead. Creighton strung together a three-point spurt to pull within 14-13, and the Bluejays took a 17-16 lead after an ace by Kloth and kill by Jaela Zimmerman. Foecke sided out for the Huskers, but the Jays scored the next two to go up 19-17. Sweet terminated to pull NU within one, but a service error restored Creighton's two-point advantage. Sweet got another kill, and Davis added her fifth to even the score at 20-20. The Jays held tough, though, scoring the next two points to regain a 22-20 lead. After a timeout, Sweet connected again from the right side, but the Bluejays gained set point at 24-22 and clinched the set on the next rally as Kloth connected for the eighth time on 10 swings.

Set 2: Creighton claimed the early advantage with a 4-1 start to set two. Foecke got the Huskers back in it with a pair of kills and an ace. But the Jays rattled off a 3-0 run to make it 7-4. The Bluejays later went on a 7-0 run to go up 15-7. Creighton built its lead to 19-11 before a Davis kill, a Maloney ace and a Sweet kill trimmed the lead to five at 19-14. The closest the Huskers could get the rest of the way was four points, as Creighton took the 2-0 lead with a 25-19 win.

Set 3: Miller sparked the Huskers with a pair of ace serves to help NU to a 4-0 lead. Creighton took a timeout as the Huskers went ahead 6-1 for their biggest lead of the match to that point. Creighton got within three at 10-7, but back-to-back blocks by the Huskers put NU back up by five, 12-7. The teams traded sideouts for four rallies before a CU hitting error and solo block by Foecke made it 16-9 Huskers. Another block by the Big Red, this one by Foecke and Schwarzenbach, increased the lead to 17-9. Davis' 12th kill of the night capped a long rally, and Foecke blasted out of the back row before Sweet tipped a kill to the floor to make it 21-13. After the Jays scored twice, Sweet and Foecke produced kills for a 23-15 lead, and a Miller ace - her third of the set - ended it at 25-18. The Huskers limited Creighton to .023 hitting in set three.

Set 4: A pair of kills by Foecke and one by Sweet, combined with back-to-back CU hitting errors lifted Nebraska to an 8-3 lead. The Bluejays chipped away to within 11-9, but the Huskers answered with the next two points and went up 16-10 after a Lauren Stivrins ace. The Bluejays sliced the deficit to three at 17-14, forcing a Husker timeout. After the timeout, Creighton served long and then hit into the net, and Foecke served the Huskers' seventh ace to restore a six-point lead, 20-14. But Creighton came right back with another 3-0 run of its own before Davis ended the run with a kill to make it 21-17. The lead shrunk to two, 21-19, before Davis sided out once again to keep NU ahead by three. With a 22-20 lead, a huge dig by Davis, followed by the freshman's 16th kill of the night, made it 23-20. Foecke followed on the next rally with her 19th kill for set point at 24-20. The Jays fought off two set points, but Foecke sealed the 25-22 win with her 20th kill, setting up the first-ever fifth set between the schools.

Set 5: Foecke tooled a block to begin the set, and her next kill made it 3-1 Big Red. Davis connected twice more to boost the Huskers to a 5-3 advantage. Hames saved a ball from going into the scorer's table, and Foecke and Stivrins finished that rally with a block before Foecke's career-high 23rd kill gave NU an 8-5 lead as the teams switched sides. After the break, Foecke and Schwarzenbach stuffed a Creighton attack to make it 9-5. The Jays fought back to within one, 10-9, after a block, but Foecke's 25th kill made it 11-9. The All-American then served back-to-back aces for a 13-9 Husker advantage. Creighton went into the net to give NU four match points at 14-10, but they only needed one as Maloney served an ace to clinch the match.

Up Next: The Huskers are back at home on Sunday to face Iowa State at 1 p.m. NU will retire Sarah Pavan's jersey after the match.





Lincoln - The Nebraska women’s basketball team will be featured early and often during Big Ten play this season, with 10 games to be televised as part of the overall conference package announced by the Big Ten Network on Thursday, Sept. 6.

Nebraska’s 10 nationally televised conference games are the most for the Huskers since BTN, CBS and ESPN2 joined forces to televise 12 of the Big Red’s Big Ten contests during the 2014-15 season.

The past two seasons, only three of Nebraska’s regular-season conference games each year have appeared on BTN. The Huskers’ return to being prominently featured on national television can be credited to Nebraska’s return to the NCAA Tournament last season under Coach Amy Williams.

The Big Red produced the nation’s top turnaround with a 14-game improvement in the win column. Williams was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year after leading the Huskers to a 21-11 overall record and a tie for third in the Big Ten regular-season standings with an 11-5 conference mark. Nebraska, which returns its top five scorers from last season, also ranked among the top 25 nationally in average home attendance for the ninth consecutive season, attracting nearly 4,400 fans per game to Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Season tickets for Nebraska women’s basketball are on sale now at Huskers.com or by calling 1-800-8-BIG-RED.

Nebraska’s 18-game Big Ten regular-season schedule in 2018-19 will feature five Husker road games televised by the Big Ten Network, beginning with a New Year’s Eve game at defending Big Ten champion Ohio State. Tip time with the Buckeyes is set for noon (CT) on Dec. 31 in Columbus, Ohio.

During the heart of Big Ten Conference play, the Big Red will become a regular BTN mid-week attraction, with three consecutive Thursday night road games at Purdue (Jan. 31, 7 p.m.), at Michigan (Feb. 7, 6 p.m.) and at Maryland (Feb. 14, 7 p.m.) set to be televised by the network.

Nebraska’s Big Ten regular-season finale at Penn State also will be televised by BTN on Saturday, March 2 at 2 p.m. (CT).

The Huskers’ outstanding 15-game home schedule got even more exciting with the announcement of the conference television slate, as Nebraska’s Big Ten opener against 2018 NCAA Tournament qualifier Michigan at Pinnacle Bank Arena will be televised by BTN on Friday, Dec. 28 at 6 p.m.

Although Nebraska’s home game against perennial national power Maryland will not be televised on Tuesday, Jan. 8, the Huskers return to BTN for a Sunday showdown with Rutgers on Jan. 13 at 2 p.m.

The highlight of Nebraska’s regular-season TV schedule comes on Sunday, Jan. 20, at Pinnacle Bank Arena, when the Big Red square off with 2018 NCAA Tournament qualifier Minnesota on ESPN2. Tip-off with the Golden Gophers is set for 5 p.m.

It will be Nebraska’s first regular-season television appearance on ESPN2 since facing Maryland in College Park on Feb. 8, 2015. The Huskers have played a pair of NCAA Tournament games on ESPN2 since the 2015 regular-season matchup with the Terps.

Nebraska closes its home regular-season TV appearances with Michigan State on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m., and against Iowa on Monday, Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. Both games will be televised by BTN.

In addition to Nebraska’s 10 regular-season conference games scheduled to appear on BTN and ESPN2, each of the first 12 games of the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament in Indianapolis return to BTN this season, before ESPN2 televises the Big Ten Championship Game on Sunday, March 10.
