LOUISVILLE, Ky.—After three wins in straight sets over the weekend, the Colorado State volleyball team moved up one spot this week, to No. 24, in the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll. The poll was released Monday afternoon by the AVCA.

The Rams jumped ahead of California, which slipped from No. 17 to No. 25 after a five-set loss to Mountain West foe San Diego State on Saturday.

Nebraska took the top spot in this week’s poll after defeating previous No. 1 UCLA—which visits Moby Arena on Sept. 15. The Bruins still received one first-place vote after going 1-1 on the weekend. UCLA is now ranked No. 3. Nebraska was previously ranked third.

Pepperdine dropped two spots, to No. 13, while Tennessee moved up one, to No. 14. The Rams face Tennessee on Friday in the Shocker Volleyball Classic in Wichita, Kan. CSU and Pepperdine meet Sept. 7 at Moby Arena.

San Diego State, which was picked to finish second in the Mountain West, received 36 total votes, the second most among those in the ‘receiving votes’ category. Also receiving votes were Oklahoma and BYU. CSU faces both teams this weekend, in addition to Wichita State, which received votes in the preseason poll, before falling to New Mexico State—also one of CSU’s 2012 opponents.
