The Nebraska volleyball team is ranked No. 6 in the final coaches’ poll of the season, which was released Monday afternoon.

Nebraska finished the season with a 16-3 record after losing against Texas in the NCAA Elite Eight last week. Each of the Huskers' losses came against teams that finished in the top 10 — Texas, Minnesota and Ohio State.
