PROVO -- BYU (18-14) begins its conference season with matchups against San Diego State (23-12) and UNLV (24-16) this week. The Cougars finished second in the MWC last season with a 15-5 record, and BYU head coach Gordon Eakin says it'll take a lot of focus to remain at the top.

"In our conference, it's tough," Eakin said. "Anybody can beat anybody on any given day. We look at every team as a challenge, and we know we need to play one game at a time. We'll see where we end up at the end."

The Cougars are coming off a successful two-game homestand against Idaho State last weekend and are hoping to add to their winning streak, which now stands at three games.

BYU travels to San Diego to face San Diego State in a double-header on Thursday at 3 p.m. (PST) and 5 p.m. The first game will be broadcast live on CSTV. The Cougars then head to Las Vegas to play UNLV on Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. All games will be available via livestats.
