It looked like hope may be lost as Nebraska fell behind by two in the fourth set, already trailing 2-1 in the match. But then the Huskers evened the set, took the lead and got a kill on their first set point to draw even with No. 7 Wisconsin.

With the home crowd in a frezy from the frantic finish to the fourth, Wisconsin hardly stood a chance as Nebraska steamrolled the Badgers in the fifth to complete the comeback and move to 4-0 in Big Ten play.
