Creighton is ranked in the Top 15 in the country for attendance. Nebraska football has sold every home game since forever and has the record for the most consecutive sellouts in NCAA history. No other city in the country could put 20,000+ a game into a baseball stadium for the College World Series. The largest crowd ever to witness a USA Swim meet was in Omaha. The NCAA tournament was one of the quickest to sell out in 2008. And now again, a record for attendance for a volleyball match in US history was inside Qwest Center Omaha watching Nebraska play Penn St.
So let's recap what has happened inside the Qwest Center for attendance: Home to a Top 15 basketball team. Held the largest crowd ever to see a swim meet in the United States. And now, another record for the largest attended volleyball match in US history.
It's 2-1 Penn St. as I write this...win or lose....I'm so proud of Omaha and the state of Nebraska. I don't care if Indy tries to claim the label as the amateur capital....Indy couldn't do what we do when it comes to supporting sports. Omaha is home to best fans in college athletics.
EDIT: Penn St. survives 15-11 in Game 5. 17,400+ were in witness to a tremendous effort. Nice job Ladies....you made Husker fans proud.
