LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Big Ten volleyball coaches pick Nebraska to finish second in the conference behind two-time defending champion Penn State.

Wisconsin is third in the poll released Thursday, followed by Illinois, Purdue, Michigan State and Minnesota. Michigan is picked eighth, followed by Ohio State, Northwestern, Iowa, Indiana, Maryland and Rutgers.

Nebraska senior Mary Pollmiller and sophomore Kadie Rolfzen are on the 15-member preseason All-Big Ten team, with Rolfzen a unanimous selection.

This will be Nebraska’s fourth season as a member of the Big Ten. The Huskers have finished no lower than second in each of their first three years, including a conference title in 2011.
