Wisconsin's postseason seemed far too easy, winning all nine sets they played to earn a spot back in the Regional Championship.
Facing Nebraska in the Field House for a spot in Pittsburgh, surely the Wisconsin would be tested. Wrong. With a sweep over the Cornhuskers, the Badgers third sweeping Nebraska this year, Wisconsin punched their ticket to the Volleyball Final Four for the first time since 2013.
