For the third time since 2004, the Central Missouri bowling team fell to Nebraska in the NCAA Bowling Championships held in Canton, MI this weekend.  The Jennies lost 4-1 for the title.

The Huskers are no strangers to Central Missouri State University, as the two teams met in both 2004 and 2005 at the NCAA finals. NU prevailed in both years for its first two NCAA Championship titles.  

Nebraska won the first game 200-185.  Central Missouri came back to take advantage of several open frames by NU to win 198-149. The Huskers picked up momentum again in the third game with a 201-168 win over UCM.  In the fourth game, NU freshmen Danielle van der Meer and Valerie Calberry came out in the eighth and ninth frames with doubles, setting Central Missouri down 31 pins as the Huskers held on to beat UCM in the fourth, 201-177, and led Central Missouri 3-1 heading into the fifth game.  In the decisive game, NU outrolled UCM 190-135.
