Four teams, including newcomer Idaho, received first-place votes. Idaho State and Northern Arizona, which finished third and fourth last year, tied atop the poll,  each receiving four first-place votes. The Bengals won the Big Sky Conference tournament championship as the No. 3 seed. Both teams return five of six starters.

Idaho, the dominant volleyball program in the league when the school left the Big Sky in 1996, is third and received two first-place votes. The Vandals, who went 50-6 in Big Sky matches their final four seasons in the Big Sky (1992-95), tied for third in the Western Athletic Conference last season.
