Prep Football: Central climbs to 5-0

Entering Friday night's game, Millard West had knocked off four ranked teams to climb to No. 1. Omaha Central quarterback Chris Griffin made sure the Eagles weren't the fifth. The senior accounted for four touchdowns as the host Eagles rallied for a 42-30 win in front of an estimated 4,800 at Seemann Stadium.

NU Volleyball: Setter Holloway adds another dimension

All good setters can make an opponent look silly when they opt for a sneak attack. But when teams square off against No. 1 Nebraska, they're primarily concerned with trying to stop Sarah Pavan, Jordan Larson and Christina Houghtelling on the outside. What Rachel Holloway does offensively is the last thing opponents typically are going to worry about. But in the two years she's been Nebraska's setter, the thing that sticks out most is Holloway's knack for when to attack.
