OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - A Big Ten championship will be on the line in some form Friday night at Devaney after the Huskers beat Purdue in three sets, 25-22, 25-20, 25-11. The Boilermakers are ranked 19th in the country and were held to a season low .016 hitting percentage. With the win Nebraska moves to 16-2 in the Big Ten, one game behind No. 3 Wisconsin and the Badgers will be Lincoln Friday night. No. 9 Minnesota comes in Saturday night to finish off the regular season. If the Huskers win the last two matches they will clinch at least a share of the Big Ten championship.
