    9 out of 12 teams in the conference ranked or receiving votes. No, the PAC isn't a volleyball powerhouse at all.

    This! And :gobuffs:

    I fully expect them to win the first three matches of the season when I will get to see them.

    They should win out in the non-conference schedule they have except maybe for the game at Creighton. I see that Creighton is ranked at #22 after finishing last season unranked. I didn't realize they were potentially that good so that will be a very interesting match. I need to start looking again at that idea of going to Creighton for that tourney.

    The Creighton match looks like the only potential loss out of the nonconference schedule. Maybe Illinois too. I know nothing about them, but looking at last season's results, they beat some good teams and went to 5 sets with Penn State.

    Right.... I forgot about Illinois. Guess I should have checked the non-con schedule ... memory fails again!
