OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The NCAA Volleyball Twitter account posted an image from Stanford's locker room after a five-set win over Nebraska in the national championship game in Minneapolis Saturday.

The NCAA has since deleted the post that depicted Stanford and Nebraska's mascots along with expletives on a whiteboard. The Cardinal Athletic Director apologized to the Cornhusker program in a statement Saturday.

"The image in the background of the picture is unacceptable and does not reflect the values of Stanford University," Athletic Director Bernard Muir said. "We have reached out to our colleagues at Nebraska to express our sincerest apologies to the university and its women's volleyball program."

Nebraska Athletics told KMTV 3 News Now it has no comment on the situation and is not planning on releasing a statement.

The Cornhuskers (29-7) finished as NCAA runner-ups for the fourth time in program history.
