Volleyball moved up two spots in the national rankings from 11th to 9th. Oregon opened their season with sweeps of UC Irvine and Boston College. Oregon finished last year ranked 9th nationally after a run to the elite 8.

The Daily emerald takes a closer look at the work that Johnny Johnson III put in over the summer to improve on a disappointing season last year. Johnson III lead Oregon with 7 receptions and 98 yards in the season opener.

Oreognlive takes a closer look at the Auburn defensive strategy that was employed in the second half and forced Oregon away from the run and away from the deep pass. Auburn employed a defensive strategy that other teams may try to replicate going forward.
