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

Big changes have hit the national rankings after six of the top-10 ranked teams lost last week.

Eight teams moved spots in the newest 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.
