The Trojans are back in the national rankings.
USC earned its first ranking since 2017 in the Off the Block National Media Poll as it jumped to No. 10 in the latest national rankings that were released Tuesday.
USC finished tied with Loyola for the final spot in the top-10 poll following two five-game victories at the Pac-12/Big Ten Challenge this weekend. With these wins, the Trojans extended their winning streak to four matches.
The 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.
