November in Big Ten volleyball means the title race has taken shape and the NCAA tournament push is well underway. Contenders have emerged and the early season surprises have faded into memory as the 10-week conference season pushes onward.
BTN volleyball announcer Mike Wolf is back with his weekly Big Ten Volleyball Report on BTN.com this season. It was a wild opening week of conference play so let’s take a quick look back before we preview three big matches coming up.
On Sept. 30, BTN Originals breaks new ground with the second installment of their one-hour series “B1G Close Up” – which will feature the Sept. 23 volleyball match between Wisconsin and Penn State. Wisconsin entered the match ranked No. 16, looking to take down No. 1 Penn State.
Eight Big Ten teams are ranked in the latest AVCA Coaches Poll, released Monday, headlined by defending national champion and No. 1 Penn State.
