LEXINGTON, Ky. -- After another 2-0 week in conference action, Baylor volleyball appeared at No. 23 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Poll Top 25 Poll Monday afternoon.
The Bears (20-5, 10-2 Big 12) are ranked for the 25th time in program history and have been listed in the poll for four consecutive weeks since Oct. 9. The No. 23 ranking is a season high mark for the 2017 squad.
The 2017 Bears are the first Baylor team since 2009 to make an appearance in the poll. During that season, BU was ranked for 10 straight weeks and peaked at No. 17, which still stands as the program high ranking in the 35-year history of the AVCA poll.
Baylor has recorded wins over three ranked opponents this season, besting then-No. 10 BYU in five sets on Sept. 9, sweeping then-No. 20 Iowa State in Ames on Oct. 4 and most recently sweeping then-No. 19 Iowa State in Waco last Saturday.
Baylor is the fourth-ranked Big 12 team behind No. 3 Texas, No. 11 Kansas and ahead of No. 24 Iowa State.
No. 23 Baylor has a midweek bye before traveling to face 11th-ranked Kansas Saturday at noon CT at Horejsi Family Athletics Center in Lawrence, Kan.
