2022 Big Ten volleyball matches are right around the corner, and the conference is preparing for another elite season on the court.

During the 2021 season, Wisconsin captured its first-ever national championship. To get there, the Badgers took out Nebraska in a dramatic All-B1G final with both programs looking for another strong season in 2022.

Those 2 programs once again lead the preseason poll in the B1G followed by Minnesota, Ohio State and Penn State in the top 5. 8 B1G teams made the NCAA Tournament last season.

Nebraska and Wisconsin also tied with Ohio State for most preseason All-B1G selections at 3 players apiece. Nebraska’s Madi Kubik was the lone unanimous preseason All-B1G nominee.

Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota (2) and Northwestern also had players selected.
