In a pair of polls released Monday, the Cal Poly volleyball team moved up one spot while the football team stayed put.
After its 30-17, 30-22, 30-27 sweep of visiting Big West Conference rival UC Santa Barbara, Cal Poly (14-4, 6-0) moved from No. 20 to 19 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association/College Sports TV poll. The Mustangs received 490 points.
Following its bye Saturday, the Mustang football team stayed at No. 4 in The Sports Network’s Division I-AA poll.
Prior to the poll’s release, there was speculation that Cal Poly (5-1, 2-0 Great West Football Conference) could move up because then-No. 1 New Hampshire (5-1) was upset 42-23 by then-No. 13 James Madison (5-1) on Saturday.
Instead, Illinois State (5-1) , which garnered 11 first-place votes, leapfrogged Cal Poly to the No. 3 spot. Appalachian State (6-1) is the new No. 1, Montana (5-1) No. 2 with two first-place votes and Youngstown State (6-1) No. 5. UNH is now No. 7 and JMU No. 8.
