#17 USC at #6 Creighton – 1:30 pm ET (Fox Sports Go)

Meeting in Omaha are a pair of squads who pulled off victories against higher-ranked teams in week one in #17 USC and #6 Creighton. Last year the two teams met in Los Angeles and participated in a five-set thriller that went USC’s way. Before that, the two met in the Sweet 16 in 2015 in a four-set win for the Trojans.

Creighton looks to have its best shot in that span to score a win over USC as they come in ranked sixth in the country after they defeated then #3 Washington in Seattle last week. They can score another Pac-12 ranked victory as they get USC at home.

USC also jumped in the polls after a strong week one. They went 3-0 in that opening week including a win over a top 20 Michigan squad. They now have a chance to jump even higher up on the day, as they also face #14 Kentucky.


#24 Western Kentucky vs. RV(#27) Illinois – 10:30 am ET (LIVE STATS)

Western Kentucky surfaced into the top 25 after a perfect start to the season while Illinois impressed in week one to come close from doing so. The Fighting Illini will look to use their strong block against the Hilltoppers smooth offense.

As mentioned earlier, USC gets another top-15 team on the day with Kentucky. It’s a fun meeting of Pac-12 and SEC that could either supplant USC’s rise in the top 25 or could flex the Wildcats muscle again vs. the Pac-12 after they defeated Utah last week.

#4 Texas at #23 San Diego – 10:30 pm ET (TheW.TV)

Late at night in San Diego, California the Texas Longhorns will try to net a top-25 victory over San Diego. The Toreros were adept at upsetting volleyball powers in the non-conference last season and will try to recapture that magic.
