LINCOLN — Being able to hit a volleyball hard has never been an issue for Alicia Ostrander. Nebraska’s junior outside hitter has elite arm strength, the sought-after trait coveted by volleyball coaches, bullpen managers and quarterback gurus alike.

“I’ve been telling her this for three years. She has a great arm, probably the best arm on our team,” Husker volleyball coach John Cook said. “If you had her go out there and throw footballs and baseballs, she would have a great arm. Now, she’s learning how to kill volleyballs with it.”

LINCOLN — There may have been plenty of reasons for Nebraska’s improved defensive play in the second half Saturday against Northwestern.

Maybe the Huskers wore the Wildcats down. Maybe they just tackled better.

Huskers show depth on offensive line

EVANSTON, Ill. — Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck told reporters last week that he wanted to rotate players on the offensive line.

EVANSTON, Ill. — Northwestern always seems to surprise you.
