Tennessee getting some notice in the rankings

After an upset of the #22 team in the country and two other wins to start the season 3-0, the Lady Vols are beginning to get a little notice in the various rankings.

  • In the AVCA Coaches Poll, Tennessee is receiving votes and is an unofficial #37! The last time UT was mentioned in the coaches poll was 2012 when they started the season #15 and ended the year an unofficial #32.
  • In the Pablo Ranking (where teams start the season ranked where they ended the previous year), UT moved up from 72nd to 59th this week.
  • In PrepVolleyball’s newly reconfigured Top 64 (which projects which 64 teams might make the NCAA Tournament field and then ranks them), the Lady Vols went from not making the cut to #38 this week.
  • And in the poll, Tennessee jumps into the list receiving votes at #40.
