Game time has changed to noon for Saturday’s BYU-Loyola Marymount series, but Thursday and Friday night’s contests remain at 6 p.m.

The three-game series is the debut for West Coast Conference baseball action in Provo. BYU (12-11 overall and 4-2 WCC) hosts league-leading LMU (12-12, 3-0).

Due to tight travel plans game time was moved up one hour for Saturday.  The Lions were picked to finish fourth in the WCC pre-season poll, while BYU balloted seventh.

“I’ve always said pre-season rankings don’t mean a lot, so I’m not surprised Loyola is playing well,” BYU coach Vance Law said.  “We’ve got our work cut out for us.  Anybody can beat anybody on a given day in college baseball.

“We look forward to playing at home.  We feel at home in our home where we are comfortable.  I anticipate we will play well.”

Chris Capper (1-4, 3.10), Mark Anderson (4-1, 3.48) and Desmond Poulson (0-2, 4.44) will start for the Cougars against LMU. 

All of the BYU games this week will be broadcast live on 960 AM, with BYU Radio carrying and Thursday’s games on the Internet.  BYUtv will televise Thursday and Friday night’s BYU-LMU game live.
