UCLA will enter the postseason as the top team in the nation.
The Bruins received all but four first-place votes to finish No. 1 in the new Off the Block 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. This is the last poll of the regular season and the final poll of the 2022 season will be released following the NCAA Tournament in May.
