The Gophers volleyball team moved up one spot to No. 10 in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association poll released Monday.

Minnesota lost in five sets on the road to No. 4 Penn State on Wednesday and beat No.17 Ohio State in three sets Saturday.

The Gophers will face No. 5 Michigan State and No. 16 Michigan this week at the Sports Pavilion.

The top-four positions remained the same from a week ago, with Southern California, Florida and Texas rounding out the top three, respectively.

Nebraska, Wisconsin and Purdue are the other ranked Big Ten teams at No. 8, No. 15 and No. 25.
