OTB, Springbak release new college men’s volleyball national media poll

Long Beach State and UCLA remain the top two ranked teams, but the rest of the national media poll remained pretty fluid.

Off the Block unveiled on Tuesday the latest Off the Block/Springbak, Inc. National Media Poll that featured seven teams changing their rankings from the previous week.

The Off the Block/Springbak, Inc. National Media Poll is the only rankings in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball solely determined by media members. The 10 teams receiving the most votes are ranked in the National Media Poll, while other schools earning votes but finishing outside of the top 10 are considered teams receiving votes.

A new national media poll is released every Tuesday during the regular season on Off the Block’s website.
