Nebraska and Wisconsin were ranked in a tie for No.5, with the latter receiving one first-place vote as well. The Badgers handed CSU its only home loss last season, sweeping the Rams 3-0 at Moby Arena.

Coming in one spot ahead of CSU at No.11 is BYU, who the Rams defeated 3-1 on a neutral court last season in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

In-state rival Colorado, who the Rams eliminated from the postseason with a 3-2 win in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, cracked the list at No.24.

The next poll will be released Monday.
