Penn State had a free ball come softly back over the net in the fourth set, but could not convert when a pair of PSU players collided and the ball fell to the floor for a Husker point. It would be the only match point the Nittany Lions would see, as Nebraska came from behind to win the fourth, then ran away with the fifth to win the match 3-2.

Nebraska finished with 90 digs and 13 total blocks, and rode that defensive output to sneak out the five-set win and survive to play another day.
