This weekend didn’t go quite as planned for many sports fans in Nebraska.
The Creighton men’s soccer team lost to Indiana Friday in the College Cup semifinals, falling one match short of a short at the national championship for the second straight year. Meanwhile, the Nebraska volleyball team knocked off Washington on Friday in Omaha before losing to Oregon on Saturday with a Final Four berth on the line.
