Another busy week …
- St. Mary’s (8-7) hands #11 BYU (15-1) its first loss of the season … just one day after the Gaels also knocked off #18 Pepperdine.
- Pepperdine had a bad week: the Waves also lost to Santa Clara
- With BYU’s loss, there are only two undefeated Division 1 schools remaining: #2 Oregon and #5 Washington. Those two teams meet in Eugene a week from Saturday.
- #1 Penn State absolutely crushed #10 Minnesota, including 25-8 in the second set.
- Both #3 USC and #4 UCLA lost … both to Washington.
- #13 Purdue keeps on winning … which could be significant down the line for Washington’s RPI (since the Huskies beat the Boilermakers 3-0)
