With non-conference play in the books, only six Division I teams remain unbeaten, topped by No. 1 BYU,whose claim to the top spot got stronger after the Stanford team it defeated two weeks ago won a home and home this weekend versus No. 9 Texas.
All six unbeatens are among the top 24 teams in the College Top 64, including three from the B1G Ten and two from the WCC. Portland, at 12-0, is the most improbable undefeated team left. Not only are the Pilots 12-0 for the first time in program history; they haven’t been 10 or more games above .500 in 34 years!
The College Top 64 welcomes seven new teams to the rankings, led by No. 35 Colorado, one of two new entrants from the Pac-12 this week. Indiana, St. Mary’s and South Carolina are three first-timers into our At-Large spots.
Please note: PrepVolleyball.com’s College 64, which ranks 64 teams, does not strictly determine the top 64 teams in the nation; rather, it is a ranking of the 64 teams we project will play in the NCAA tournament. This unique concept both recognizes the top teams in the nation, which hail largely from the “Power 5” conferences, as well as teams from those mid-major conference and leagues that often struggle for attention. Via this ranking, we will be paying attention to how every team in every conference does week-by-week.
