Fans say this big win was so unexpected.

Going into the season some had doubts and didn't think the girls would come out as the champions. 

So this is just another reason for Nebraskans to celebrate.

 Fans greeted the women's volleyball team with loud cheers in Lincoln after they brought home the championship title.

"How many of you back in August were thinking, ok this team is going to win a big championship?”     

An unexpected but timely win for Husker volleyball has fans in a frenzy.

"My mom and I got up all fast, we screamed and were jumping all around."

"Fantastic, those girls played their hearts out."

A huge win fans say no one saw coming.

"It's Nebraska, come on, they weren't expected to do this well and they went out and did it." 

"We surprised a lot of people, we surprised ourselves and we brought that daddy home."

After a rough football season, Scott Frost's coming to Nebraska has had Husker Hounds packed.

People are still loading up on merchandise, and now this.

"If someone would have told me we were going to be this busy after a four to eight football season I would have laughed at them."

"They took the sting out of the football season."

"It was the best, it's so exciting."

A new football head coach and now a national title, Nebraskans say this is how you end the year.

"Nebraska needed this, we needed this, Merry Christmas Huskers."
