My men’s volleyball media poll ballot

Pepperdine and Ohio State were rewarded for their victories against ranked teams last week in the latest national media poll.

Pepperdine after defeating No. 2 UC Irvine jumped up one spot to No. 3, while Ohio State following its sweep against non-conference rival Penn State moved one spot to No. 6 in the newest national media poll released Tuesday.
