AVCA Sept. 4, 2017 Poll
The American Volleyball Coaches Association has announced that the University of Minnesota moved from No. 2 to No. 1 in the latest AVCA poll.
After a Stanford loss to Penn State and Minnesota's three wins last weekend, the Golden Gophers moved from No. 2 to No. 1 in this week's poll. Florida is ranked second, followed by Penn State (No. 3), Stanford (No. 4) and Texas rounds out the top five. In all, eight of Minnesota's 2017 opponents are currently in the top 25.
The last time the Gophers were ranked No. 1 was just last season in the 2016 weekly polls. Minnesota entered the 2016 NCAA tournament as the No. 1 ranked team and was also ranked No. 1 during the Oct. 3, 2016 poll. Prior to last year's No. 1 rankings, Minnesota was last ranked No. 1 in 2004.
Minnesota travels to Austin, Texas this week as it competes in the American Campus Classic, Sept. 7-8 (Thurs.-Fri.). The Gophers face Denver and Corpus Christi (TAMCC) on Thursday, Sept. 7, while they face No. 5 Texas, Friday, Sept. 8. All matches are televised on the Longhorn Network and streamed through ESPN3.
