The Nebraska Agriculture Department said in a news release Monday that a U.S. Department of Agriculture laboratory confirmed the diagnoses of vesicular stomatitis. The samples were taken from infected cattle on two farms in Wheeler County. The USDA says other outbreaks this year have been confirmed in Colorado and Texas. The virus that causes vesicular stomatitis is spread by insects and from animal to animal through open sores and saliva. The virus causes oral blisters and sores that can be painful.

Behind a career-high 35 points from Shavon Shields, Nebraska roared back from a 16-point first-half deficit to defeat Omaha, 80-67, in front a sellout crowd of 15,889 at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Shields finished with 35 points on 12-of-16 shooting, including a career-high four 3-pointers, and added eight rebounds in matching the Pinnacle Bank Arena scoring record set by Terran Petteway last January.
