Penn State following an upset win against Lewis has moved into the national media poll for the first time this season.

The Nittany Lions jumped to No. 9 in the latest Off the Block National Media Poll that was released Tuesday on Off the Block.

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.
