The American Volleyball Coaches’ Association released their preseason top-25 on Tuesday afternoon, and the Wildcats came in at No. 7 overall.

Kentucky is one of just three SEC teams ranked in the initial poll, joining Florida (No. 10) and Tennessee) as the only schools in the conference listed.

The Wildcats are scheduled to play six games this season against ranked teams, including two against No. 10 Florida, and once vs. No. 14 USC, No. 17 Purdue, No. 19 Tennessee, and No. 25 Louisville.
