Before we get started with the fifth version of bracketology, here’s a reminder of how this year’s tournament works. With the addition of the Big West, the tournament will feature seven teams with five automatic bids and two at-large picks. A full article detailing it all can be seen here.

Big West: #1 Long Beach State (19-0, 4-0)

  • The 49ers had an off week but continue their quest to the tournament and a Big West title as the current leader.

Conference Carolinas: (RV) Barton (17-6, 13-0)

  • Two more league victories and three overall keep the Bulldogs a match ahead of King for the league lead, as they wrap up this automatic bid for the week being.

EIVA: #16 George Mason (12-10, 8-0)

  • George Mason has been a different animal in EIVA play and kept things rolling in getting back to league action this week with a pair of wins. That keeps them two matches ahead of Penn State and Harvard for the top spot.

MIVA: #5 Loyola Chicago (19-4, 9-1)

  • Loyola Chicago got revenge on Ball State and also took out Fort Wayne as now the only other contender they need to pick off once again is Ohio State – who they match up with this week.

MPSF: #2 BYU (18-4, 8-0)

  • BYU had an off week, but remains in first of the MPSF as they hold a two-match plus lead for the regular season crown on everyone else in the conference.


#3 UCLA Bruins (19-5, 7-2 MPSF)

  • UCLA also had an off week, but they remain ranked highly in the VolleyMob and RPI rankings as they’ve posted a lengthy resume with wins over plenty of top tier and middle-ranked opponents.

#4 UC Irvine Anteaters (17-5, 3-1 Big West)

  • A one-win week for UC Irvine with Pepperdine on a bye week reaffirms their spot as the second at-large bid in both the VolleyMob and RPI rankings.
