UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The 12th-seeded Duke volleyball team will take on fourth-seeded Penn State in the NCAA Regional Final this evening in front of a nationally-televised audience in Rec Hall on the campus of Penn State University.

The Blue Devils (27-6) and Nittany Lions (29-5) will square off at 6:30 p.m. in the Elite Eight matchup featured on ESPNU. Beth Mowins will carry the play-by-play, and Karch Kiraly will provide the color commentary.

Duke defeated Missouri 3-1 on Friday, December 10, to advance to the Elite Eight for the second time in program history. Penn State, meanwhile, swept Oklahoma 3-0 on Friday in defense of the program's three consecutive NCAA Volleyball Championships.

Duke is the third ACC team in conference history to advance to the NCAA Elite Eight. The Blue Devil defense has been key in the team's run so far, holding the three NCAA opponents to a combined .160 hitting percentage. All three of Duke's opponents - High Point, Ohio and Missouri - have hit under .200.

The winner of the Duke-Penn State matchup will travel to Kansas City, Missouri, for the NCAA Volleyball Final Four on December 16-18. Tonight's winner will face the winner of 16th-seeded Purdue and ninth-seeded Texas.
