The Cougars are back in sole possession of the top spot in the Off the Block National Media Poll.

BYU a week after being tied with Hawai’i for No. 1 earned three more votes than the Rainbow Warriors in the latest national media poll that was released Tuesday.

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.
