The Missouri Tigers will face Northern Iowa in the first round of the NCAA volleyball tournament in Cedar Falls, Iowa and the Missouri State Bears travel to Lincoln, Nebraska to open up play against Auburn.
Both schools received at-large bids on Sunday as the field of 64 was announced. The Tigers finished the season 20-10 and have the task of opening play against the fifth overall seeded Panthers who went 30-2 and won the Missouri Valley Conference.
The Bears went 21-9 and will face the Tigers of Auburn who went 20-12. If Missouri State gets past Auburn, they will most likely face the number two overall seeded Cornhuskers.
Mizzou opens play on Friday night at 8:30 central time. The Bears get started Thursday afternoon at 4:30 central time.
