LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Colorado State volleyball team continues to climb the national rankings, moving up to No. 13 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll on Monday. CSU moved up four spots after a 3-1 win at Nevada last week, and is now one of three undefeated teams in the country.
The Rams began the year receiving top-25 votes (38th), and have steadily risen each week following a 13-0 start to the season. The ranking is CSU’s highest since Nov. 14, 2010, when the Rams were also ranked No. 13 after improving to 22-2. In the program’s storied history, CSU has been ranked 239 total weeks, more frequently than all but 14 teams in the NCAA.
CSU jumped ahead of Ohio State (now 14th), Arizona State (16th), Michigan (17th) and UCLA (23rd). The four-spot improvement is tied for the largest jump of the week.
For the sixth time in seven polls, the No. 1 team has changed after No. 1 Washington lost Friday. Five teams received first-place votes this week, including USC (first), Florida (second), Texas (third), Hawai'i (fifth) and Michigan State (seventh).
CSU returns home for the first time in nearly three weeks to host a pair of conference matches. The Rams host Mountain West newcomer Utah State (9-6, 3-2 MW) on Thursday (7 p.m.), followed by a match against Boise State (7-7, 2-3 MW) on Saturday (this match has been moved to 7:30 p.m.). Thursday is CSU’s annual ‘Dig Pink’ match. The team will wear pink jerseys to spread breast cancer awareness, and fans are encouraged to wear pink as well. Saturday’s match will be part of CSU’s Homecoming & Family Weekend festivities.
Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone at 1-800-491-RAMS or at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office. Students get in free with a student ID.
