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

There is no longer a unanimous No. 1 in college men’s volleyball.

Long Beach State maintained its No. 1 ranking for the fourth consecutive week, but UCLA received three first-place votes in the latest Off the Block/Springbak, Inc. National Media Poll that was released on Tuesday.

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.
