The Gophers volleyball team is stuck with the No. 10 national ranking for the fourth-straight week, according to Monday's American Volleyball Coaches Association poll.

Minnesota split matches on the road this weekend with a four-set victory at Iowa and a four-set loss at Nebraska. The Hawkeyes remain unranked, while the Cornhuskers fell from No. 3 to No. 4.

Penn State held onto its No. 1 ranking, while Stanford and Oregon are ranked second and third in the nation, respectively.

The Gophers will host unranked Wisconsin in a border battle at the Sports Pavilion on Wednesday. The Gophers take on No. 17 Purdue on Saturday, also at the Sports Pavilion.
