Stanford men grab the top spot in AVCA volleyball poll

The top-ranked Stanford men's volleyball team opens its Mountain Pacific Sports Federation season at UCLA on Friday at 3 p.m.

Stanford moved into the nation's top spot following losses by Loyola-Chicago, UC Irvine and BYU.

The Cardinal (3-0) opened its regular-season with a win over the Bruins at the UC Santa Barbara Invitational.

The Bruins have won three straight since losing to Stanford.

The Cardinal are one of just five undefeated teams among the top 15.

Stanford beat visiting Lewis in four sets and visiting Grand Canyon in straight sets last weekend.

The trip to UCLA opens a four-match road trip, which also includes UC Santa Barbara on Saturday before going to BYU and Cal Baptist the following weekend.
