Volleyball Remains No. 22 in Coaches Poll

BATON ROUGE ? Despite splitting a pair of Southeastern Conference matches last weekend at home, the LSU volleyball team remained steady at No. 22 in the AVCA/CSTV Coaches poll, it was announced on Monday.
 
The No. 22 national ranking marks the 20th consecutive week the Tigers have been among the Top 25, the longest streak since being ranked for 52 straight weeks from 1989 through 1993. Last week, LSU swept South Carolina, before pushing No. 6 Florida to the limit in a four-game loss.
 
The Gators are still the highest ranked team in the SEC, remaining at No. 6 this week after improving to 11-0 on the year. For the season, the Tigers’ only ranked opponent remains Florida. LSU is also scheduled to face Tulane, which is among the programs receiving votes. The Tigers will take on the Green Wave in a non-conference match on Nov. 24.
 
The Tigers return to the road next weekend as LSU takes on Auburn and Georgia. The LSU Tigers will face the Auburn Tigers on Friday at 7 p.m. before taking on the Bulldogs on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT. The Tigers return home to face Alabama and Mississippi State the following weekend as LSU kicks off the “Dig for the Cure” campaign.  The Tigers will be raising money as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout October.
