Big Ten schools dominate top 10 of volleyball rankings

Iowa vs. Nebraska, 3.20

The Nebraska volleyball team takes on Iowa on March 20 at the Devaney Sports Center.

Steven M. Sipple, Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett discuss the latest in Nebraska football recruiting -- some developments on the 2022 quarterback front and what the coming weeks and months look like -- what's still in play for Fred Hoiberg's men's basketball team over the next week and the NU baseball team's season-opening series against Purdue down in Texas. That plus some volleyball and women's basketball talk, too, on this week's Husker Extra Podcast. 

The Nebraska volleyball team remains ranked No. 5 in the new coaches’ poll released on Monday.

In fact, each of the top-10 teams are the same as the previous week. No. 1 Wisconsin played on Sunday for the first time in one month due to COVID-19 cases with its program (and then Northwestern’s team) but still beat No. 4 Minnesota 3-1. And the Badgers didn’t have starting setter Sydney Hilley.

This week Nebraska plays Michigan (4-5) on Thursday and Friday.

Six of the top-11 teams in the poll are from the Big Ten: Wisconsin (1), Minnesota (4), Nebraska (5), Ohio State (9), Purdue (10) and Penn State (11).
