Complete AVCA poll
LEXINGTON, Ky.—After taking one of the top teams in the nation to five sets on Saturday, the Rams remained steady in the AVCA Coaches Top 25 Poll, earning 38 total points. The poll was released by the AVCA Monday afternoon.
CSU is earning the fourth-most votes in the ‘receiving votes’ category, up one spot from last week despite obtaining six fewer total points.
After handing CSU its first home loss in more than a year—coupled with a Nebraska loss to No. 25 Iowa State on Saturday—UCLA moved into the No. 1 spot. It marks the second consecutive season that a CSU opponent has held the nation’s top spot (Nebraska was ranked No. 1 last season seven weeks after falling to CSU).
Also in the poll is Pepperdine (No. 14)—which CSU beat earlier this month—and BYU (No. 16) and Tennessee (No. 21), which both defeated CSU. The Rams also earned a four-set victory over Oklahoma two weeks ago. The Sooners are receiving votes.
CSU began the year at No. 25 and improved to No. 24 after a 3-0 start to the season. After dropping three matches in the Shocker Volleyball Classic, the Rams fell out of the poll. In all, CSU has been ranked in 237 of the AVCA’s 434 all-time polls, 14th-most in the country, including 33 of the last 40, dating back to the 2009 season.
The Rams open up Mountain West play Thursday at New Mexico (7 p.m. MT), and will look to win their fourth straight conference championship, and 10th in the league’s 14-year history.
