Nebraska is Big Ten champ

Women's Soccer, Division I, Nebraska, Big Ten

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Nebraska added a second 2013 Big Ten Conference trophy to its mantle on Sunday with a 1-0 win against Iowa to claim its first Big Ten Tournament Championship. Jaycie Johnson's penalty kick was the difference as the Huskers locked up both the regular-season and tournament titles for the fourth time in school history and for the first time since 2000. With the victory, the Cornhuskers earned the Big Ten’s automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.

Jaycie Johnson scored the game’s lone goal in the 29th minute, converting a penalty kick after being fouled inside the 18-yard box. Nebraska goalkeeper Emma Stevens made three saves throughout the match to preserve the shutout.

Nebraska also captured the Big Ten Championship on Nov. 1, becoming the first No. 1 seed to win both the conference championship and tournament title since Penn State in 2008.
