Lincoln - The Nebraska volleyball team moved up to No. 1 in the latest AVCA Coaches poll released Monday afternoon. The Huskers, who improved to 17-1 on the year following a 4-1 win over previously top-ranked Illinois on Saturday night, had a total of 1,448 points and received 38 of the 60 first-place votes.

The ranking represents the 82nd week that Nebraska has been ranked No. 1 in the poll. Since 2001, the Huskers have been ranked No. 1 for 49 weeks, including holding the top spot nationally for the entire 2006 season and for 15 weeks during the 2005 season. The last time Nebraska was ranked No. 1 was in October of 2007.

California is ranked second this week with a total of 1,384 points and collected eight first-place votes. Illinois dropped to third and collected two first-place votes. USC, which tallied 12 first-place votes, and Stanford round out the top five. Five other Big Ten teams are in the poll this week, including Penn State (No. 8), Purdue (No. 11), Minnesota (No. 15), Michigan (No. 22) and Ohio State (No. 23).

The Huskers will face two of these ranked teams this weekend, as they travel to face the No. 23 Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m., before heading to University Park, Pa., for a showdown with the No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. The Huskers' match with Penn State will air live on BTN.
