There seems to be a big difference between being No. 1 and being No. 16 in college volleyball. The 16th ranked Missouri Tigers learned that lesson the hard way as they were swept by top-ranked Nebraska for the second time this season.
A sold-out crowd in Lincoln watched the Huskers run away with a 30-27, 30-23, and 30-16 victory. Jessica Vander Kooi was the lone bright spot for the Tigers with 14 kills and 11 digs moving her into third-place all-time at Mizzou.
The Tigers could not overcome Sarah Pavan and her match-high 18 kills.
Mizzou stays on the road this weekend with a match against Baylor Friday night.
