Dates, Sites and Pairings

The NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Committee announced today the 64-team field for the 2007 NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship. Thirty-one conferences were awarded automatic qualification, and the remaining 33 slots were filled with at-large selections to complete the bracket.

The top 16 teams were seeded nationally and placed within four regions. The teams tabbed as the top four seeds were No. 1 Stanford University; No. 2 University of Nebraska, Lincoln; No. 3 Pennsylvania State University; and No. 4 University of Texas at Austin.

Team pairings were determined by geographical proximity, with the exception that teams from the same conference were not paired during the first and second rounds.

The Big 12 Conference, the Big Ten Conference and the Pacific-10 Conference led all conferences with six teams selected. The Southeastern Conference garnered five teams in the field while the West Coast Conference and Missouri Valley Conference each have four teams in the tournament. Two teams, Penn State and Stanford have earned bids to all 27 championships. Seven teams are making their initial appearances in the tournament: Cleveland State University, University of Delaware, Lipscomb University, South Dakota State University, Tennessee State University, University of Tulsa, and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

In the 27-season history of the championship, ten schools have been crowned champion, nine of which are in this year's bracket, including the defending champion Nebraska, which also won in 1995 and 2000.

Additional past winners making the field are Stanford (1992, '94, '96, '97, 2001, '04), University of Hawaii, Manoa (1982, '83, '87), Long Beach State University (1989, '93, '98), University of California, Los Angeles (1984, '90, '91), University of Southern California (1981, 2002, '03), Penn State (1999), Texas (1988) and University of Washington (2005). The University of the Pacific (1985 and '86) is the only past champion to not make the field of 64.

First- and second-round matches will be played at 16 campus sites. Teams winning both matches will move on to regional play December 7 and 8. The pre-determined regional sites are Stanford, California; Gainesville, Florida; University Park, Pennsylvania; and Madison, Wisconsin. The regional winners will advance to the semifinals and final hosted by Sacramento State University and the Sacramento Sports Commission at ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California, on December 13 and 15.
