It's the old adage -- in order to be the best,you've got to beat the best.
Last season the Husker Volleyball team beat the best at a 2 to 1 clip. The Big Red were 10 and 5 against ranked opponents in 2013 and they'll see a pair of powerful foes right off the bat in 2014.
Nebraska set to open the year with two top 15 teams from last season, Florida State and Stanford at the end of the month.
Couple that with the normal rigors of the Big Ten and it makes for a difficult slate, but one they feel will prepare them for the money matches down the road.
