A college volleyball match in Nebraska has set a world record

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. A college volleyball match in Nebraska just set a world record for attendance at a women's sporting event. More than 92,000 fans packed the Cornhuskers' stadium Wednesday to watch the Huskers vanquish the Omaha Mavericks in a 3-0 sweep. It was the Huskers' fourth straight sweep to start this season, but the big news was that attendance record. Fans in a sea of red wiped away the previous record, set at a 2022 soccer match.
