The University of Northern Iowa volleyball team took down #19 Iowa State in five sets on September 12, 2017. This marked the third win this season over a ranked opponent.

It’s the second straight year that UNI (8-3 overall) beat Iowa State (7-1 overall) in a five-set match. UNI leads the all-time series, 34-28.

The Panthers are one of three NCAA Division I volleyball teams with three wins over ranked foes this season – joining Florida and Creighton in that elite list.

UNI came out strong with a 25-21 triumph in the opening set, only to see the Cyclones even the match at 1-1 with their own 25-21 win in the second.

The Panthers looked dominant midway through the third set with a 17-10 lead. However, the Cyclones stormed back and knotted the set at 22-22. UNI stemmed the tide and was able to post a 25-23 third-set victory.

The Cyclones forced a fifth and deciding set with a decisive 25-17 win in the fourth. The Panthers closed out the match with a 15-11 win in the fifth set.

UNI will travel to Omaha, NE, to take part in the Omaha Challenge this Friday and Saturday. UNI will take on Omaha (Friday., 7:00 PM), No. 10 Nebraska (Saturday, Noon), and Kansas State (Saturday, 5:30 PM).
