Kicking Off

• Nebraska continues its tradition of playing a strong schedule in 2022. This year’s slate features eight NCAA Tournament qualifiers from last season, including two that advanced to the Sweet 16 and one that reached the Elite Eight.  

• During Big Ten play, five of Nebraska’s 10 conference opponents qualified for the NCAA Tournament last season.

• Three of Nebraska’s 2022 opponents earned spots on the preseason United Soccer Coaches poll, released on Aug. 2. The teams are Michigan (9), Penn State (14) and USC (15).

• Nebraska went 2-2-1 during the spring season with wins over Missouri Western (3-0) and Kansas State (2-1).

• Nebraska returns two All-Big Ten performers from last season, junior Reagan Raabe and sophomore Sarah Weber. Raabe, a third-team all-conference selection, tied for the team high in goals (7) last season and produced the most points on the team (17). Weber, an all-freshman team honoree in 2021, led the team in shots (62) and shots on goal (31) last season.

• Freshman Abbey Schwarz, a recipient of last year’s Big Ten Freshman of the Week accolade, led the Huskers in assists last season, as she compiled eight to place her fifth on the Big Ten charts.

• Head Coach John Walker enters his 29th season, alongside assistant coaches Ian Bridge (seventh season), Marty Everding (25th season) and Samantha Areman (second season).

Scouting the Omaha Mavericks

• Omaha went 9-8-2 last season and posted a 6-3-0 record in Summit League play to finish seventh in the conference.

• At the Summit League Tournament, Omaha lost to South Dakota State in the first round to come up short of an NCAA Tournament bid.

• The Mavericks posted a 4-3-1 record in home games in 2021.

• Omaha and Nebraska have met in one regular season game, as the teams competed for the first time last season. The Mavericks recorded the 0-1 win, but the Huskers led 22-1 in shots and 6-0 in shots on goal.

• Following its exhibition match against Nebraska, Omaha stays home to face Drake on Aug. 10 for an exhibition game before its opening its regular season on Aug. 18 against Oklahoma State.

• Head Coach Tim Walters is 36-39-12 in his sixth season overall at Omaha. He is assisted by Erin Gunther, Humberto Estrada and Greg Jarosik.
