The top-seeded Nebraska volleyball's team quest to become the first back-to-back national champions in program history ended Thursday night, as the Texas Longhorns swept the defending national champs in straight sets, 25-18, 25-23, and 25-21.

Texas took control from the start, dominating most of the first set. The Longhorns pulled away from 20-20 tie in the second set to win the game. And finally in the third set, Texas was just too much for the Huskers, picking up the sweep.

The Longhorns hits .321 on Thursday night, the only team to hit above .300 against Nebraska this season. Meanwhile, the Huskers only hit .182, its second-lowest mark this season.  Texas also had the advantage at the net with a 10-4 blocking edge.

Nebraska ends the season with a 31-3 record overall for the program's highest winning percentage (.912) since 2008.
