Nebraska won’t play its first home football game until Sept. 16, but on Wednesday night, 92,003 fans packed Lincoln’s Memorial Stadium for Volleyball Day — making it the highest-attended women’s sports event in history.
Highlighted by the Cornhuskers’ volleyball team taking on in-state counterpart Nebraska-Omaha, the crowd broke the previous record for a women’s sports event set in April 2022, when Barcelona hosted Wolfsburg at Camp Nou for a UEFA Women’s Champions League match.
The evening also included an exhibition between Division II schools Nebraska-Kearney and Wayne State.
