5 top-10 teams remain undefeated as season continues

  Wisconsin remains undefeated with a record of 4-0.

The No. 8 Bruins defeated No. 15 Hawaii in a sweep on Saturday to continue their undefeated season with set scores of 25-23, 25-22 and 25-22.

This sixth win marks the best start UCLA has had since 2011 when the Bruins went on to win the national championship. However, there are still four other top-10 ranked teams that are undefeated so far as well.

No. 10 BYU  

With a killer group of freshman adding to the excellence on the court, BYU looks to continue its six-game win streak. So far, the Cougars have taken on Utah Valley, Rice, Cal Poly, Wyoming, LIU Brooklyn and Ohio State. While most of the games ended with BYU sweeping the teams, the game against Rice had BYU fans worried. However, BYU came back from being down two sets to defeat the Owls. But, it was the matchup with Ohio State, which is ranked No. 11, when BYU really impressed fans. The Cougars fought back after being down two sets again and were able to secure the win.

No. 8 UCLA

At the LMU Invitational, UCLA defeated Niagara, Illinois State and Loyola Marymount to prove to volleyball fans that it was ready for a stellar 2016 season. And the quality playing continued at the Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic. Here, the Bruins faced Pacific, Missouri State and Hawaii. While the Bruins posted only three sweeps for their six games, they look to their victory at the USD Invitational on Friday.

No. 4 Kansas

The Jayhawks started their win streak in Mississippi at the Bulldog Invitational where they faced Mississippi State, Eastern Washington and Lamar. Here they went undefeated in each set, sweeping each team. Kansas went on to sweep Chicago State and Maryland at its own Kansas Invitational. However, during the Kansas Invitational, Arkansas stopped the Jayhawks' sweep streak, almost defeating them on Saturday. Still, the Jayhawks pull out a victory and look to continue restart their sweep streak at the Bluejay Invitational.

No. 2 Wisconsin

While the Badgers have not faced as many teams as the others, their four-game win streak is not to be forgotten. After traveling to Hawaii for the Rainbow Wahine Invitational, where the Badgers defeated Hawaii, Arizona and Kansas State, they swept San Diego at the Hotelred Invitational. Now, they look to defeat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Sunday afternoon to continue their success.

No. 1 Nebraska

Similar to Wisconsin, the Huskers have faced only four teams. However, the victories over these four should not go unnoticed. In the VERT Challenge, Nebraska took down No. 7 Florida and swept No. 3 Texas. Then, at home on Saturday for the Nebraska Invitational, it swept Iowa State and Oregon State to post a couple more wins to its streak. Still, to stay on top, the Huskers must look to continue their victories at the Lobo Classic in New Mexico.
