PROVO, Utah – No. 3 BYU men’s volleyball hosts No. 4 Hawai’i this week in a pair of crucial conference matches.

With Long Beach State holding a 13-1 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation record, the Cougars (17-2, 11-1 MPSF) and Rainbow Warriors (20-2, 10-2 MPSF) will battle to keep pace with the 49ers for first place in league play.

Last Week Out

BYU swept No. 9 Pepperdine in a pair of road matches in Malibu. Jake Langlois led the Cougars, averaging 5.67 kills, 1.17 digs and 1.00 blocks per set on the week.
