Nebraska, Texas volleyball set impressive viewership record at national title
Nebraska volleyball fell to Texas in 3 sets at the national title game on Sunday. The Huskers, which had been No. 1 for most of the season, struggled to get anything going against an impressive Texas team.
Following the match, it was revealed that the Huskers and Longhorns’ title bout broke an ABC viewership record for college volleyball. The viewership total of 1.7 million breaks the previous record of 1.66 million set in October during a regional window, according to Sports Media Watch.
It also shatters the previous record of 1.2 million for a national title bout, which was set by Nebraska and Wisconsin on ESPN2 a few years ago.
