The University of Wisconsin volleyball team not only took down No. 1 Nebraska on Wednesday night, the fifth-ranked Badgers swept the Cornhuskers in a rematch of last year’s NCAA championship.

Sarah Franklin had 21 kills in leading the Badgers to a 25-23, 25-23, 25-18 win Wednesday night at the UW Field House, while teammate Izzy Ashburn had 25 assists.

Things don’t get any easier for Wisconsin (16-3, 10-1 B1G), with No. 9 Minnesota (13-6, 8-3) headed to Madison on Saturday night for a sold out matchup. Wisconsin was swept by the Gophers back on Sept. 25.
