NORMAN, Okla. (AP) The 17th-ranked Oklahoma volleyball team travels to Nebraska tomorrow to take on the top-ranked and undefeated Cornhuskers.

It'll be a top-25 battle between the two teams in the Big 12 Conference. Nebraska, with a perfect 13-0 Big 12 mark, owns a two-game lead in the league race over Oklahoma.

Oklahoma is meeting Nebraska for the second time this year and the circumstances are a little different the second time around. Since dropping a three-game match to Nebraska in Norman in September, the Sooners have gone 11-1 and moved into the top-25 poll.

OU coach Santiago Restrepo says playing the Number One team in the country is going to be a huge challenge for the Sooners.
