The University of Colorado women's volleyball team was voted 10th in the Pac-12 coaches poll released Wednesday.

Stanford garnered the top spot with 10 first-place votes and 120 points. Southern Cal was second with the other two first-place votes and 111 points.

Stanford won a league-record 15th Pac-12 regular-season crown last year despite four freshmen in the starting lineup. This year, coach John Dunning welcomes back the entire starting lineup, as well as AVCA first-team All-American Carly Wopat.

CU was 14-18 overall and 4-16 in the Pac-12 last season. The Buffs got 30 points in the coaches poll.

Trailing CU was Washington State (21 points) and Oregon State (19 points). The Buffs beat those teams once along with Utah and Arizona State once last season.
