SNAPPED! Women's Volleyball 109-Game Win Streak Ends

As if tonight couldn't get worse, Penn State's women's volleyball team has fallen 3-0 to Stanford, breaking an NCAA record 109-game winning streak.

We'll have more on this tomorrow. But figured we'd give you all the bad news in one night.

From the release:
"After three storybook seasons, No. 1 Penn State's record-breaking 109-match winning streak came to an end Saturday night with a 3-0 (28-26, 25-12, 25-18) loss to No. 2 Stanford (7-0).

During the streak, which is the longest Division I women's streak in history and second overall only to the Miami men's tennis team's streak of 137 straight matches, Penn State lost just 19 sets. Penn State won a record breaking 111 straight sets from the final set of the 2007 National Championship match against Stanford to the third set of the 2008 NCAA National Semifinal against Nebraska. Also, Penn State won an NCAA-best 55 straight road matches and was not out-blocked for 68 consecutive matches. "
