Wisconsin is the top-ranked team in NCAA volleyball.

The Badgers, whose only loss came at North Carolina on Sept. 9, are 14-1 overall and 6-0 in the Big Ten. Accordingly, they are ranked No. 1 in both the AVCA Division I Poll and latest NCAA RPI rankings released Monday.

It is the first time Wisconsin has been ranked No. 1 by the AVCA.

In the AVCA, the top three are all from the Big Ten: No. 2 is a former No. 1, Nebraska. The third spot goes to last week’s No. 1, Minnesota.

In the NCAA RPI, Minnesota is No. 2, Texas of the Big is No. 3 and Nebraska is No. 4. The fifth spot goes to San Diego, which is also ranked fifth in the AVCA poll.
