MADISON -

The Wisconsin Badgers volleyball team is the number one ranked team in the country for the first time in program history.

The Badgers moved into the top spot of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) poll  ahead of second ranked Nebraska and third ranked Minnesota, which was ranked number one last week before losing at Penn State.

Wisconsin (14-1 overall, 6-0 Big Ten) hosts Minnesota Wednesday night at 8 pm at the UW Fieldhouse.
