PROVO -- The No. 1 BYU men's volleyball team will host No. 6 Cal State Northridge Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. each evening in Provo at the Smith Fieldhouse as the Cougars try to remain atop the national and Mountain Pacific Sports Federation standings.

The Cougars lead the series against the Matadors 22-15 and 13-7 in Provo. When the two teams faced off in California in 2007, the No. 3 Cougars dropped the first match to the No. 10 Matadors in four games before returning the favor the following night. When they met in Provo in the first round of the MPSF playoffs, BYU used its home-court advantage to sweep CSUN and advance to face future NCAA Champ UC Irvine.

Every home match will have a free live stats feed option. The live stats feed can be accessed by visiting the men's volleyball schedule page at www.byucougars.com. The live stats can be launched by clicking on the "Live Stats" link for the appropriate game.

Also available for the third season in a row is a live video feed through CSTV All-Access. Users must subscribe to this service. More information, such as cost and direct links to the CSTV All-Access page can be found by visiting the schedule page and clicking on the "Live Video" link.
