College Top 64: Glance at the Dance

There are coaches polls, RPIs, fan polls and something called “Pablo” out there that rank the top Division I college volleyball programs in the country. We wanted to be different as we re-vision how we cover college volleyball in 2018.

This ranking, which will come out every Monday, will rank 64 teams. This won’t strictly be the top 64 teams in the nation; rather, it will be a ranking of the 64 teams we project will play in the NCAA tournament, the field for which will be announced Nov. 25.
