The Cougars are ranked the highest in the Mountain West Conference so far this season followed by New Mexico at No. 28 and San Diego State at No. 69 respectively. In conference, BYU has posted wins over UNLV, San Diego State, Utah and Air Force and only one loss to New Mexico.

The 11-9 Colorado State Rams are even in conference play at 3-3 after beating Utah last week in a 5-2 decision at home. The Rams swept the Utes in doubles action and won four of the singles matches sealing the win and snapping a four-game losing skid.
