PROVO -- The No. 21 ranked BYU women's tennis team takes off for yet another road trip, traveling to Colorado to face No. 55 Colorado and No. 52 Denver on Friday and Saturday.

"These are very tough opponents," Coach Craig Manning said. "The stress of tough matches can be a challenge, especially this early in the season. But we're just going to work hard and believe."

BYU starts its tennis weekend against Colorado, who comes into the match with a 2-0 record, having beaten Air Force and the University of Denver so far this season. Denver comes in at 0-1, its only match the loss to Colorado. Regardless of what the two schools have done this season, Manning said his team will approach this match as it has all the rest.

"We're just going to play tennis," Manning said. We'll control what we have control over, and see what happens.

The Cougars face Colorado at 4 p.m. Friday and Denver at 5 p.m. Saturday.
