The Nebraska volleyball is ranked second in the AVCA Coaches Poll. The Huskers were one of three teams to receive first place votes, as No. 1 Penn State tallied the most at 40, while Nebraska was second with 16 and No. 3 Texas snagged four votes.
Penn State has won three straight national titles and 102 consecutive matches.
The Huskers lost one starter from a 2009 team that finished fifth in the final AVCA poll. Nebraska finished the year with a 26-7 record and made a trip to the NCAA Regional round for the 16th straight season, before losing to Texas.
The rest of the preseason top 10 was rounded out by No. 4 Stanford, No. 5 Hawai’i, T-No.6 Illinois, T-No. 6 Minnesota, No. 8 Washington, No. 9 Iowa State and No. 10 Southern Cal. Nebraska, Texas and Iowa State were the only Big 12 teams to crack the top 25.
