PROVO, Utah – No. 6 BYU men’s volleyball hits the road this week for a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation quarterfinals match at No. 8 USC Saturday night.
The Cougars (17-9, 14-8 MPSF) face off against the Trojans (18-8, 15-7 MPSF) Saturday night at 7 p.m. PDT at the Galen Center.
The two teams split the regular-season matches earlier this year in Los Angeles. USC won the first match in five sets while BYU took the next night’s match in four.
The Cougars lead the overall series 34-12 but have just a 13-8 record on the Trojans’ home court.
USC finished fourth in the conference after a predicted third-place finish in the preseason coaches’ poll. BYU is the five-seed after securing the seed with two wins against top-ranked Hawai’i last week.
The Trojans are led by Alex Slaught’s 2.93 kills per set, a 10.59 assist and 2.27 dig average from Micah Christenson and Andy Benesh’s 0.90 blocks per set.
Saturday’s match will be streamed live on Pac-12.com. Links to live stats and a video feed can be found on the BYU men’s volleyball schedule page.
