The two-seed Texas volleyball is looking for its second straight National Championship as it prepares to square off against the one-seed Nebraska Cornhuskers in the national championship match on Dec. 17. Texas is appearing in its 10th national championship match in the last 15 years.

And the Longhorns defeated the No. 2 Stanford Cardinal three sets to one in the regionals on Dec. 9.
Senior Asjia O'Neal has led the way for the Longhorns during this postseason run. She has emerged as a true superstar as a stud middle blocker for the Longhorns.
