One can just imagine what will happen Friday in the Pac-12, where No. 14 UCLA — now alone at the top by a game, goes to Arizona, No. 25 Washington State is at Oregon State, Colorado goes to Cal, and USC plays at Arizona State.

That’s just a sampling of the NCAA Division I women’s volleyball schedule Friday.

The four-match Big Ten slate includes No. 6 Purdue at No. 7 Ohio State. Third-ranked Wisconsin is at Michigan State, No. 15 Penn State entertains Rutgers, and Michigan goes to Maryland.

In the ACC, second-ranked and unbeaten Louisville is at Virginia Tech, while No. 4 Pittsburgh is at Miami in a match between the two teams tied for second in the league, a game behind Louisville. Also, NC State is at Syracuse, Virginia is at Florida, Duke is at Clemson, Notre Dame is at Wake Forest, and North Carolina is at Boston College.

The SEC has Kentucky back at LSU and No. 21 Tennessee at Georgia.

The Big 12 slate is identical to Thursday’s when top-ranked and unbeaten Texas is home again for TCU, Kansas is back at Baylor, Texas Tech is at Oklahoma, and West Virginia is at Kansas State.

Western Kentucky, ranked No. 20, has a Conference USA match against Middle Tennessee.
