#3 Florida vs. #15 North Carolina – 8:30 pm ET (LIVE STATS)

San Juan, Puerto Rico takes host to this matchup in the ACC/SEC Puerto Rico Clasico. One team is looking to continue building while the other is looking to lay the foundation.

Florida looks to continue growing its resume with its third try at a top-15 victory. The first two went smoothly as the Gators upset then #1 Texas and #5 Nebraska to vault from number nine to three in the rankings. Their strong front line, both offensively and defensively, should make an interesting challenge for some of the Tar Heels dynamic pin players.

North Carolina had a rough first week going 0-for-six on sets against top-10 competition. They can redeem themselves a bit in what might be their last match against a ranked team for over a month long span.


RV(#31) TCU at #16 Florida State – 1 pm ET (ACC Network Extra)

TCU suffered a five-set loss to Colorado State on Friday to end their undefeated start, but still should present hosting Florida State with a challenge after they made the second round last season. The Seminoles meanwhile look to flex their muscle as potentially the top ACC team.

#19 Utah at RV(#34) Hawaii – 10 pm ET (Spectrum OC 16)

Star outside hitter Adora Anae looks well on her way to All-American honors in 2017 for the Utes, and now gets the chance to take on her hometown team at their facility as she was born in Hawaii. The Rainbow Wahine have bounced back nicely from a rough start and would love to snag a top 25 victory.


#1 Stanford at Texas A&M – Noon ET (SEC Network Plus)

NC State at Auburn – 6 pm ET (GameTracker)
