Long Beach State won a pair of Big West contests against then No. 4 UC Irvine to move to 21-0 and continue its reign as the No. 1 team in the AVCA Top 15 poll for the 12th straight week.
A loss to unranked USC dropped UCLA from No. 3 to No. 5 and bumped UC Irvine and Pepperdine up a spot to No. 3 and 4 respectively.
Hawaii moved up one place to No. 6 with two wins over UC San Diego and Ohio State climbed two spots to No. 7 with wins over Loyola and No. 10 Lewis.
Loyola, meanwhile, dropped two spots to No. 8. Cal State Northridge fell one position to No. 9 with a split against No. 11 UC Santa Barbara.
The only other movement came as Concordia Irvine and Grand Canyon swapped spots, ending up at No. 13 and 14. Concordia picked up a big win over No. 2 BYU on Thursday, while GCU lost to the Cougars on Saturday.
