LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Colorado State volleyball team remained put at No. 12 in this week’s AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll. CSU earned three more total points, but did not change positions after a pair of road wins against two of the top teams in the Mountain West.
The Rams passed Nebraska — which fell five spots to No. 13 — but were jumped by Missouri, which climbed seven spots to No. 11 after beating then-No. 2 Florida. Missouri and CSU are the only undefeated teams in the country.
CSU did not rise in the poll for the first time this season. The Rams began 2013 receiving top-25 votes (38th) and jumped into the top 25 three weeks later, steadily inclining each poll. In the program’s storied history, CSU has been ranked 241 total weeks, more frequently than all but 14 teams in the NCAA.
Five teams in last week’s top 10 lost, but many came against other ranked opponents. Texas regained first place this week, followed by Penn State, Washington, Southern California and Florida. Prior to last week, the last time CSU was ranked as high as No. 12 was the Sept. 29, 2008 poll.
CSU returns to Moby Arena – where it has won 16 straight and 32 of its last 33 matches – this week to close the first half of MW action vs. Fresno State (Thursday, 7 p.m.) and conference newcomer San José State (Saturday, 1 p.m.). Fresno State is tied for second in the conference standings. Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone at 1-800-491-RAMS or at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office.

Rams in Training set for Saturday
Children will have a rare opportunity to learn from members of the nationally ranked CSU volleyball program through Rams in Training. Following Saturday’s afternoon match vs. the Spartans, children ages 6-12 can take part in a free hour-long clinic on the Moby Arena court. Participants will be taught by the Rams players. While the clinic is free, it is open to just 100 children, and parents must register their child online.
