Huskers Slip in AVCA Poll After Loss to Ohio State

November 08, 2021

The Huskers dropped back out of the top-10 following their third loss in four matches.

Nebraska (17-6) came in at No. 11 in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll after falling at Ohio State in three sets on Saturday. Before that, the Huskers swept Illinois behind a big match from Lexi Sun. Nebraska also slipped one spot in the NCAA RPI, to No. 15.

Wisconsin (20-2) remained at No. 4 after a 2-0 week and is in sole possession of first place in the Big Ten Standings at 12-2. Nebraska fell into a tie for second place with Minnesota at 11-3. The Golden Gophers (16-6) moved up three spots to No. 8 after winning both matches last week.

Purdue (18-5, 10-4 Big Ten) dropped one spot to No. 9, while the Buckeyes (19-5, 9-5 Big Ten) dropped three spots after splitting with Nebraska and Minnesota. Penn State (17-7, 10-4 Big Ten) held steady at No. 15, as did Illinois (16-9) at No. 25. Michigan (14-9, 7-7 Big Ten) is sixth among others receiving votes with nine points.

Baylor knocked off Texas last week, handing the previously top-ranked Longhorns their first loss of the season. That opened the door for 23-0 Louisville, led by former Husker Dani Busboom Kelly, to rise to No. 1. The Cardinals received 59 of 64 first-place votes, with Texas (18-1) receiving the other five.

Utah (16-7) remained at No. 16, Stanford (13-9) dropped ons spot to No. 20 and Creighton (24-3) moved up one spot to No. 23.

Nebraska will look to get back in the win column on Friday as the Huskers host Maryland (18-8, 6-8) before heading to Bloomington to take on Indiana (9-17, 3-11) on Sunday.
