This season the Stanford Cardinal (3-1) are ranked 12th in the nation in women’s college volleyball as they take on an upstart Penn State Nittany Lions (6-0) team that is rising up the standings. They are currently 20th in the nation after a strong undefeated start. Both teams have their eyes on a run in the NCAA tournament down the line this season, with games like today’s helping build their resume and momentum. A win for the Nittany Lions would be their biggest of the season as they face back-to-back ranked west coast teams this weekend. These teams have a lot of shared history, but coming into the season it did not appear that the Nittany Lions were going to be contenders. If that is proven incorrect, now the Cardinal have an old rival back in their crosshairs both today and in the tournament.

Two years ago these teams met in the NCAA Tournament, both ranked in the top five, with the Cardinal coming out on top:
Last season the Cardinal won their match-up (3-2) in the regular season and two years ago they went 2-0 against the Nittany Lions with a win in the regular season (3-1) and in the tournament (3-0).
This is a great opportunity for the Nittany Lions to end their losing streak to the Cardinal and build on their early season momentum.
