Check out the winner projections for the marquee matches this weekend via the VBelo Rating Model.

[Editor’s note: The VBelo is the only elo model in college men’s volleyball and makes projections based on a variety of data. T.J. Breshears, a contributor to Off the Block, created the VBelo.]

This top 15 matchup should be a great match to watch. This one is basically a coin flip, according to VBelo.


The Lindenwood Invitational has several great matchups, but McKendree and Limestone might be the most evenly matched.

UCLA will visit the Farm where it is strongly favored to win. It is hard not to want to watch the great volleyball UCLA is playing right now.

As part of George Mason’s West Coast trip, they will battle the tough Anteaters. UC Irvine, though, is coming off of an upset victory against No. 2/1 Long Beach State.
