PROVO -- The BYU Cougars face their toughest meet of the season as they prepare to take on No. 1 ranked Utah Utes, this Friday, February 11, 2005, at 7 pm.
The Cougars are on a hot winning streak, losing only to Okalahoma University in their season opener at the Cancun Invitational. BYU is currently 7-1. At this time last season the Cougars were 4-3, proving that this year they are stronger and only getting better.
For the 2005 season, the Utes are 5-0, defeating schools such as UCLA, USU, and Michigan. The Utes have the upperhand in the series winning the last 15 meets between BYU and Utah. Despite this, the Cougars can't wait to try their skills against the Utes.
Last weekend in Denton, the Cougars achieved their highest overall team score of the season (196.125). The Utes highest score was a 197.375 against UCLA. Utah's average for the season is 196.290 meaning BYU is not too far behind.
The meet will be in the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City. A crowd of over 13,000 fans is expected to cheer the teams on. The game will be televised tape-delayed on KJZZ the next day (Saturday) at 5 p.m.
