One of the greatest running backs in Nebraska history, Ahman Green will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, the Packers announced on Tuesday. The 44th Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place July 19, 2014, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.
An Omaha native, Green was a cornerstone of a powerful Nebraska offense that won two national titles in his three seasons. Green, who was a member of NU's 1995 and 1997 national championship teams, closed his three-year Husker career ranked No. 2 on Nebraska's career rushing list with 3,880 yards on 574 carries.
Green entered the NFL Draft following his junior season and was a third-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, where he spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons before joining the Green Bay Packers in 2000. Green enjoyed success in Green Bay from 2000 through 2006 and again in 2009 en route to becoming the club's all-time leading rusher with 8,322 yards. He also holds franchise records for most yards from scrimmage (11,048), 1,000-yard seasons (six), 100-yard games (33) and rushing attempts (1,851).

Lincoln - An outstanding night from Kadie Rolfzen and the Husker block powered the eighth-seeded Nebraska volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep over 25th-ranked Oregon in a second-round NCAA Tournament match Saturday night in front of 8,012 fans at the Devaney Center.
With the 25-22, 25-19, 25-22 win, Nebraska (25-6) advances to next Friday's NCAA Regional Semifinal at the Devaney Center against either No. 9 seed San Diego or Arizona.
The Huskers, who swept a ranked opponent for the fifth time this season, stuffed the Ducks 13 times on Saturday, holding the fast-paced Oregon offense to a .144 attack percentage. Nebraska hit .291 as four players hit .333 or better and six Huskers had at least five kills.
Kadie Rolfzen, essentially making her postseason debut after playing only the back row in Friday's win over Fairfield, produced match-high totals of 15 kills and 17 digs. Rolfzen hit .333 on the match while recording her 12th double-double of the year. Her twin sister Amber produced five kills and Kelsey Robinson totaled eight kills. Middle blockers Meghan Haggerty and Cecilia Hall combined for 11 kills on only 20 swings, highlighted by five kills on eight error-free swings from Hall, who hit .625. Haggerty and Hall also contributed six blocks apiece. Setter Mary Pollmiller recorded five kills and dished out 36 kills, just missing a double-double with nine digs.
Liz Brenner led Oregon (20-12) with 14 kills. Canace Finley added seven kills, while Lauren Plum totaled 35 assists and Amanda Benson recorded 11 digs.
In set one, Oregon used an early 5-1 run to build a three-point lead. The teams then traded sideouts for the next 11 rallies before Nebraska closed to within one at 11-10, pulled even at 12-12 and regained the lead at 13-12, forcing a Duck timeout. Nebraska extended its run to 6-1 after the timeout, and the Huskers stretched their lead to three at 21-18 following their fifth block of the set. Nebraska pushed its advantage to four before the Ducks won consecutive points to trim the lead to 23-21 and force a Husker timeout. A Brenner kill following the timeout pulled Oregon within one before a Pollmiller kill and a block gave the Huskers a 25-22 opening set win. NU recorded six blocks in the set and received five kills from Kadie Rolfzen.
Set two featured nine ties in the first 18 rallies, as neither team led by more than one until the 20th rally of the set. Nebraska trailed eight times early, but took the lead with five consecutive points as part of a larger 13-3 run gave the Huskers a 21-12 lead. The Ducks committed five hitting errors during the run, while Robinson had three kills in the spurt. Oregon cut into the nine-point lead with a 7-2 run that trimmed the lead to four, but Nebraska won the final two rallies of the set to earn a 25-19 victory. NU had five more blocks in the second set and produced 16 kills on a .317 hitting percentage.
Oregon won four of the first five rallies of set three, and the Ducks still led by three at 11-8. Nebraska then won four of the next five rallies to tie the set at 12-12. The Huskers took their first lead of the set three rallies later and led 18-14 following an 8-2 run that was capped by back-to-back Kadie Rolfzen kills. Three straight Oregon points quickly trimmed the lead to one before the Huskers answered with five straight points to take a 23-17 lead. The Ducks continued to fight, winning four straight rallies to pull within two. Nebraska ended the run with another Kadie Rolfzen kill, then closed out the 25-22 win on the Huskers' second match point.
The Nebraska basketball team comes to Omaha Sunday afternoon to face the Creighton Bluejays. Tipoff for the annual matchup between the two programs is at 5:07 p.m. .....pre-game show with Kent Pavelka and Matt Davison starts at 4.
The Huskers are 6-2 and head into their first true road test of the season riding a three-game win streak after a 60-49 win over Miami Wednesday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Nebraska continued its string of solid efforts on the defensive end, holding Miami to 32 percent shooting and has held its last three opponents to just 57.3 points per game on 37 percent shooting.
If the Huskers are to snap a two-game losing streak to the Bluejays, they'll need another strong defensive effort on Sunday, as Creighton is averaging 83.4 points per game. The Bluejays feature two-time All-American Doug McDermott, who averages 24.4 points per game and an experienced lineup around the four-year starter, including fifth-year senior Ethan Wragge and sixth-year senior Grant Gibbs.
The Bluejays are 6-2 on the season following a 17-point win at Long Beach State earlier this week. Creighton was ranked until last week, when the Jays dropped a pair of neutral site games at the Wooden Legacy in Anaheim, Calif. Creighton’s most impressive early season wins are victories at St. Joseph’s (83-79) and Arizona State (88-60). The Bluejays feature one of the best offenses in the country, led by McDermott. The 6-foot-8 senior averages 24.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, leading the Bluejays in both categories. He is one of four seniors in a very experienced lineup, as Wagge joins McDermott in double figures by averaging 12.1 points per game, while Austin Chatman averages 8.6 points and 4.5 assists per game.
Series History vs. Creighton
Nebraska and Creighton are meeting for the 47th time in series history on Sunday, with the Cornhuskers holding a 25-21 advantage that dates back to the 1922-23 season. It is the longest non-conference series on the Huskers’ schedule. Creighton’s win last year in Lincoln snapped a seven-year streak of the home team winning the matchup. Creighton leads 15-9 all-time in Omaha and the Huskers are looking for their first win in the CenturyLink Center since the 2004 NIT. Nebraska is now 32-34 against the newly constructed Big East Conference.
