Expect Lincoln’s sports bars to be full on Thursday night when the Nebraska volleyball team’s game against Pittsburgh appears on TV screens around 8:30 p.m.
This is the standard behavior of Husker fans that is heightened when Nebraska is within championship range.
âWe’ll have a crowd for the volleyball,â said Terry Schneider of Cappy’s Hot Spot Bar & Grill. âAnytime there’s a big game, a Nebraska game, we have it. I can’t tell you how many people come for each game. But they are coming, and with a championship there will be even more.
Most sports bars in Lincoln stream every Husker volleyball game to their TVs, and most draw good crowds, especially those that follow Nebraska football games on Saturdays from August through November.
âVolleyball usually coincides with a Husker (football) crowd,â said Eric Marsh of Longwell. âIt helps at the start of the season. We hope the girls are a draw in themselves. We will find out tomorrow, because there is nothing else. We believe they will be.

The same goes for Andrew Larsen of Press Box Sports Bar & Grille. It’s based on a simple fact: The Press Box, which shows all games that are on ESPN, Big Ten Network, or Nebraska Public Media, draws a crowd for every volleyball game.
