The top five teams remained in tact in the Week 4 AVCA poll, with BYU and Stanford at the top and dividing the first place votes (58 to 6).
Nebraska and Penn State each climbed a spot to No. 3 and 4, taking advantage of a pair of Texas losses to Stanford (3-0, 3-1), which dropped the Longhorns from No. 3 to No. 5.
No. 6 through 13 remained in order. USC was the first mover outside of the top five, climbing two spots to No. 14 from tied for 16th with Friday wins over Louisiana and No. 24 San Diego at the SDSU/USD Challenge. That move bumped Cal Poly, Purdue and UCLA down a spot to 15, 16 and 17 respectively.
Michigan moved up one place to No. 18 remaining among the ranks of the undefeated at 11-0. Baylor dropped one place to No. 19, while the remainder of the Top 25 kept their rankings.
