    The pre-season poll is out and Nebraska is number 2, behind Stanford.

    https://www.avca.org/polls/di-women/8-8-2018.html

    The Big Ten is well represented with 7 in the top 25 and Michigan receiving votes (the equivalent of 27 in the rankings). Additionally the Big Ten has 5 teams in the top 12.

    The one team that I thought would be ranked higher was Purdue at 23. What I recall is they were very athletic, and didn't lose much to graduation. They gave the Huskers a good game at Devaney.

    Creighton is 13.

    1 Stanford (43) 1575 30-4 4
    2 Nebraska (20) 1525 32-4 1
    3 Texas 1389 27-3 5
    4 Minnesota 1342 28-6 10
    5 Kentucky 1260 29-4 6

    7 Florida (1) 1208 30-2 2
    8 BYU 1183 30-3 7
    9 Wisconsin 1146 22-10 12
