PROVO, Utah. — No. 2 BYU will host Stanford for a pair of matches March 12 and 13 in the Smith Fieldhouse at 7:00 p.m. MST. The games will be broadcast on BYUtv and the BYUtv App. 

A limited number of fans will be in attendance for the first time during the 2021 season. Tickets for Friday, March 12 are sold out with the March 13 tickets going on sale March 9. 

“We’ve appreciated having the opportunity to play this season considering everything that's going on, but part of what makes BYU so special is the fans and environment in the Smith Fieldhouse,” said Junior Davide Gardini. “Having fans back, distanced and in safe circumstances, means a lot to us and it’s gonna bring back the environment that we all love.” 

This could be the final time Stanford men’s volleyball will compete against BYU in the Smith Fieldhouse since their program is slated to be discontinued after the 2021 season. In July of 2020, Stanford announced the elimination of 11 athletic teams, including the two-time national champion men’s volleyball team. 

No. 2 BYU Cougars (8-2, 8-2 MPSF)

  • BYU was voted No. 2 in this week’s NVA/ AVCA poll

  • The Cougars lead the conference in team offense and team defense

  • Setter Wil Stanley ranks third nationally in assists per set with 10.75

  • BYU is on a 3 game sweep streak after beating Grand Canyon, Concordia Irvine and USC. 

Stanford Cardinal (0-5, 0-5 MPSF)

  • Adam Chang ranks third in the MPSF in blocks per set with 1.11
