BYU took an early lead in set one and held that lead for an early 1-0 set victory but the Anteaters came out strong in the second and took a quick 5-1 lead, leaving the Cougars to catch up. They were able to cut the lead to one point before UC Irvine took off and finished set two with a 25-18 final. 

The Anteaters won set three 25-17 and set four in a close 25-23 final for the match victory.

Round 2 vs. Loyola-Chicago
The Cougars bounced back from a loss a couple hours before to defeate Loyola-Chicago in five sets.
