The University of Wisconsin volleyball team is a win away from a trip to the Final Four.

The Badgers will have to defeat Nebraska for a third time this season in order to do it.

That matchup, at the UW Field House, takes place at 5 p.m. today. Wisconsin has swept Nebraska 3-0 twice, already, this season.

In the regional opener, the fifth-ranked Badgers swept No. 25 Texas A&M Friday afternoon 3-0 (25-20, 25-17, 25-23). Wisconsin (25-6) has swept every tournament match so far. Nebraska (28-4), ranked sixth, swept Hawaii on Friday, as well.

B1G Player of the Year, junior Dana Rettke, led the Badgers with 14 kills and five total blocks (one block and four block assists).

B1G Setter of the Year, Sydney Hilley, had 44 assists, eight digs for the Badgers, who out-blocked the Aggies 16-2.
