Four Mountain West women's volleyball team have begun the 2016 season undefeated. Fresno State, San José State and UNLV are all 3-0, while No. 25 Colorado State is 2-0. The Bulldogs put the streak on the line Monday night at New Hampshire at 7 p.m. ET.

Colorado State remained the No. 25 team in this week's AVCA Coaches Poll. The Rams have a mid-week match at Northern Colorado on Tuesday, then travel to Santa Barbara, California to face Baylor, Pittsburgh and UC Santa Barbara in the UCSB Tournament on Friday and Saturday.

Wyoming will have its second Friday in a row against back-to-back Top 25 competition. On opening day, the Cowgirls faced tough opponents in then-No. 20 Purdue and then-No. 24 Kentucky at the Purdue Mortar Board Invitational. On September 2, Wyoming matches up against No. 10 BYU and No. 11 Ohio State at the Sports Imports D.C. Koehl Classic in Columbus, Ohio.

Milestones: Boise State junior Sierra Nobley is seven kills away from reaching the 1,000-kill career milestone. She will become the 14th Bronco all-time to reach the mark and is expected to be the fastest with 63 career match appearances. She would be just the second Bronco to hit 1,000 kills as a junior ... Fresno State senior libero Maggie Eppright currently ranks 12th on the Mountain West career digs list with 1,417. She needs 154 digs to move into the Top 10.

Top 10 Attacks: Three Mountain West players rank 4-5-6 on the league's career attack percentage list. Boise State junior Kaitlyn Oliver is fourth at .381, while Bronco senior Maddy O'Donnell is fifth with a .367 attack percentage. Wyoming senior Laura Beach rounds out the group in sixth place with a .359 percentage.
