by Megan Ryan

The Gophers volleyball team dropped to No. 11 in the nation, according to the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association poll released Monday.

Minnesota was at No. 8 before a three-set loss to Nebraska and a comeback five-set win over Iowa on the road this weekend. The Cornhuskers moved up one spot to No. 9.

The top-three positions also switched up. Southern California took the top spot while Florida and Texas followed in second and third, respectively.

The Gophers' upcoming opponents are also ranked. Penn State sits at No. 4 and Ohio State at No. 14 before Minnesota visits Friday and Saturday.
