    F 9/3 - 9:30 am: UNI vs. Southern Cal
    F 9/3 - 6:30 pm: UNI @ Kentucky
    S 9/4 - 4 pm: UNI vs. Creighton

    Sep 10-11: Washington State tournament - Pullman, WA
    F 9/10: UNI @ Washington State
    F 9/10 - 8 pm: UNI vs. Long Beach State

    I'm also interested to see what the team does as far as the setter position goes.
    Tayler Alden took over the setting duties in the 2020-postponed-to-spring-2021 season as a true freshman.
    But Jenna Brandt, who had played as setter at Iowa State for a couple seasons transferred in to UNI (but was ineligible for the spring season, as she had played for ISU in the fall of 2020).
    And Ava Vitale has been listed as setter on the roster the past couple years, but redshirted in 2019 and didn't see any match action in the spring (other than perhaps in the scrimmages, I can't remember)

      Doesn't Texas owe us a trip up here?

      Maybe we're hosting a tournament Sept 10-11?

        Texas was originally scheduled to play here during the Fall 2020 season. But then things got all messed up with the pandemic.
        It wouldn't surprise me if the contract for the home-and-home included some "forces beyond control" clause which the pandemic would qualify as, releasing Texas from the obligation if the reconfigured scheduling didn't work out.
        But it also wouldn't surprise me if they did show up on the schedule

          Oh for sure but you'd think as a favor to the Petersen family that they'd try to make it happen. Especially with the what appears to be the best of the girls hitting recruiting age.

            Thanks for schedule update. Any roster changes besides Jenna?

              saw a Texas fan mention that they thought Sydney might end up grad transferring to UNI to play her final year (with the extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic stuff). Though I think they were basing that solely on what they thought the scholarship situation for the Longhorns would be that year, not necessarily knowing any of Sydney's intentions or UNI's roster situation for that year

              Not that that would necessarily make a difference as far as Texas scheduling a match at UNI, but anyway

                no clue. (and Jenna has been on UNI's roster since January; she just wasn't eligible to play during the spring season)

                  Looks like the MVC conference tournament will be at Illinois State again this fall (as it was in the spring)

                    my aforementioned schedule appears accurate (other than it doesn't look like the possible match against St. Thomas is slated), with the addition of traveling to Washington State to play WSU and Long Beach State on 9/10 and Gonzaga on 9/11

                    Have to kind of cringe at the press release referring to Wright State as "Write State". I guess they haven't elevated educators quite enough. Or perhaps future matches will take place "Read University" and "Rithmatic Tech"
