PROVO, Utah – Riding a five-game winning streak, BYU softball hits the road to face West Coast Conference opponent Pacific this weekend, leaving the state of Utah for the first time since the first weekend of April.
In the series history between the two teams, BYU (27-17, 4-2 WCC) leads Pacific (19-22, 2-7 WCC) 9-1 overall with a 3-0 record in Stockton, California. Since joining the WCC, the Cougars have not lost to the Tigers.
BYU is coming off of a big weekend, sweeping Saint Mary’s, who came to Provo in first in the WCC. The Cougars shut out the Gaels in two games, and the other game was a run-rule victory.
