Nebraska released next year’s schedule Thursday, and it features a season opener against Creighton and a rematch of the 2018 national championship against Stanford.

The Huskers begin the campaign Aug. 30 against Creighton at the Devaney Center. NU also faces UCLA on the opening weekend.

Another highlight of the nonconference slate is a match against Stanford on Sept. 18 in Lincoln. The Cardinal beat Nebraska in five sets last year to win the national title.

Nebraska will travel to San Diego for two matches Sept. 6 and 7. They’ll host High Point, Denver and Loyola Marymount Sept. 13 and 14, then wrap up nonconference play at home against Wichita State Sept. 21.
