The last of the NCAA volleyball unbeatens fell in a wild week. Heres a look around the sport two weeks into conference play.Ohio State rules in LincolnAs coveted as a win over Nebraska is for any team in volleyball, its old hat for Ohio State.The Buckeyes have defeated Nebraska the past three times the teams have met, including taking the final three sets to win in Lincoln on Saturday in front of 8,368 Big Red fans, many of whom had come after the afternoon football game between the Cornhuskers and Illinois.The loss snapped the Cornhuskers 28-match winning streak that dated to last seasons Oct. 24 four-set loss to Wisconsin. It leaves the sport without an unbeaten team going into the second half of the season.Twelve serving errors cost the Huskers, but credit the Buckeyes, who routed Nebraska in the final set 25-13. Ohio State took the point on all 13 of the Husker serves in the fourth set and outscored the defending national champions by a combined 20 points in the final three sets.Coach Geoff Carlston, whose seniors have never lost at Nebraska, wont divulge any secrets.Our kids walk in there with a confidence, he said. Its a great environment to play in with a lot of aficionados who have a really high volleyball IQ.Since joining the Big Ten in 2011, Nebraska owns a winning record against every opponent except Ohio State. Ohio State has won four of its past five over Nebraska and is 4-3 in Lincoln.Ohio States Luisa Schirmer attacked .480 on 14 kills in the final three sets and added 12 digs, while teammate Taylor Sandbothe had 12 kills and nine blocks, hitting at a clip of .346. Setter Taylor Hughes 11 kills was a career best.Ohio States win was even more notable given that starter Audra Appold, tied for second on the Buckeyes with 172 kills, was sidelined with illness.The win marked the Buckeyes first on the road over a No. 1 ranked team. And lest anyone forget, the final four is in the Buckeyes gym.Ohio State (12-4) moved from 19 to 14 in this weeks American Volleyball Coaches Association poll.

It was a difficult weekend in West Lafayette for the home team -- on Friday, Purdue dropped a five-setter to Wisconsin.

The previous No. 1, Concordia St. Paul (also of Minnesota), fell to No. 2.Kentucky pulls another win in GainesvilleJust like last year, the Kentucky Wildcats defeated Florida on the Gators home floor, but this one wasnt just a victory -- it was a sweep of the fifth-ranked Gators, who dropped to 11th.Missouri was the last SEC team to sweep Florida in Gainesville, on Nov. 13, 2013. Kentucky had not swept Florida since the 1990 season.Florida (13-2, 3-1) had its string of 12 straight wins snapped after hitting .128.

The Cougars improved to No. 10 in this weeks poll.Fittingly, the game was played before 2,522 in Pullman, Washington, the highest fan turnout there in 14 years. The crowd got to see the home team record its first win over the Cardinal since 2002.The Cougars topped Washington and UCLA the week before on the road. Washington State improved to 14-2, 4-0 in the Pac-12, after sweeping Cal on Sunday.Kyra Holt, last weeks espnW player of the week, had 17 kills and five blocks against Stanford and became the programs all-time scoring leader, finishing the weekend with a career total of 1,739 points.Also notable: It was the second straight five-set win for a team that had lost its previous 11 matches that went the distance prior to the win over UCLA.Washington States 4-0 start in the Pac-12 is its best in 19 years.Elsewhere in the Pac-12, No. 19 Colorado bounced UCLA behind 27 digs from senior libero Cierra Simpson. Make that four straight triple-doubles for Gabby Simpson behind 12 kills, 30 assists and 13 digs.

The Toreros only two losses were to Minnesota and Wisconsin.San Diego came into the season with a highly touted recruiting class. Among the newbies: 6-2 Canadian Thana Fayad and Spaniard Anna Newsome.Coach Brent Hilliard says Fayad has a chance to be the best outside hitter in program history and regards Newsome, of Sabadell, Barcelona, as 99 percent more developed than the setters coming into college.

John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. .

Cheap Jerseys China .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. LONDON -- Usain Bolt looked in fine shape for the Olympics by winning his last race before Rio de Janeiro on his return from injury.Keni Harrison also looked more than ready for Brazil by breaking a 28-year record in the 100-meters hurdles in London on Friday.Only, unlike Bolt, Harrison is not going to the Olympics.While Bolt is Rio-bound despite being forced to pull out of the Jamaican trials with a hamstring injury, Harrison failed to make the American track squad after a poor performance at her trials.Instead, Harrison will have to settle for her record-breaking night at the London Diamond League meet being her crowning moment of the summer.The 23-year-old Harrison ran 12.20 seconds on the site of the 2012 Olympics to surpass Yordanka Donkovas previous mark of 12.21 set in August 1988; before the American was born.Not making the Olympic team I was really upset, Harrison said. And I wanted to come out here and do what I know what I could have done (in Rio).Even sweeter for Harrison was finishing ahead of compatriots Brianna Rollins and Kristi Castlin, who both qualified for the Olympics ahead of her.You have one bad day but I knew I still had it in me, Harrison said, referring to her sixth-place finish at the U.S. trials earlier this month. I was coming out here with just vengeance to show these girls what I have.Bolt rarely has anything to prove to anyone. But the six-time Olympian champion had to show in London that he hasnt been slowed by the hamstring injury that led to him withdrawing from his countrys Olympic trials.In his first 200-meter race of the season, the worlds fastest man ran 19.89 seconds att the same Olympic Stadium where four years ago he took golds from the 100, 200 and 4x100-meter relay races.dddddddddddd On Friday, Bolt finished ahead of Alonso Edward of Panama and British runner Adam Gemili, clocking slower than LaShawn Merritts world-leading time of 19.74.Im not fully in shape. I need more work but over time I will be fine, Bolt said. I could feel the rust. The execution up there wasnt perfect but it was my first run so I cant complain.The only complaints Bolt had were targeted at American rivals who had lightly suggested -- not strongly -- that he got preferential treatment by being allowed to skip the Jamaican trials.I felt it was a joke, the Bolt said. I felt it was a disrespect the fact they think Id back out of a trials. Me, Usain Bolt who has proven myself year (after) year that Im the greatest.I laughed when I heard it. I was disappointed, especially in Justin Gatlin.Elsewhere in London, there was a trio of French winners: Jimmy Vicaut ran a sluggish 100 meters in 10.02 seconds, Pierre-Ambroise Bosse clocked 1 minute, 43.88 seconds in the 800 and Renaud Lavillenie cleared 5.9 meters in the pole vault.Olympic triple jump Christian Taylor prepared for his defense in Rio by reaching 17.78 meters.There were a couple of victories for British women on the fast newly-laid track: Laura Muir in the 1,500 as well as the quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita in the 4X100-meter relay.The meet continues for a second day on Saturday.
