NCAA volleyball tournament bracket 2023: Full schedule, TV channels, scores for college games

This should be an interesting one.

As expected, Nebraska earned the No. 1 overall seed after going 28-1 on the season. Its lone loss came in its final road trip to rival Wisconsin, which earned the No. 3 overall seed. Texas, the reigning champion, earned a two-seed, meaning it will host the first two rounds before traveling to Stanford for regionals if it wins those opening matches. 

Pitt narrowly beat out conference rival Louisville for the final top-seed due to its regular-season ACC win. Florida, which has nine losses on the season, earned a No. 4 seed, just edging out Penn State due to its head-to-head win. The Gators are one of three SEC teams hosting in the Lincoln regional.

The SEC leads all conference with eight teams dancing, followed by seven programs from the Big 12. The ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12 each earned five representatives for the tournament.
