After five weeks of play, there is no debate in the national rankings about the who are the top-two college men’s volleyball team — Hawai’i and BYU.

The teams will play a two-match series against each in on March 5-6 at Hawai’i. With about one month remaining until that series, Off the Block has compiled the team stats. Below is a statistical comparison of the two teams.
