PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s volleyball team (4-3) returns to Provo to face Montana State after going 2-1 in the Portland State Tournament last weekend.

The Cougars will play in their home opener against the Bobcats on Tuesday at 7 p.m. MDT in the Smith Fieldhouse. This will be the seventh match between the two teams, with BYU taking the last matchup 3-0 in Provo in 2005.

Montana State is 1-6 so far on the season, with their only win coming in five sets against Stetson.

The Bobcats return two starters plus their libero from a squad that went 15-14 (9-11 Big Sky) during their 2012 season.

The Cougars will play their final non-conference match on Thursday evening against the Anteaters of UC Irvine at 7 p.m. MDT. This is only the second match between the squads, with BYU winning 2-0 back in 1982.

The Anteaters are 5-1 this season, only losing to Cleveland State in five sets.

Both matches will be televised nationally on BYUtv. Links to live stats can be found on the BYU women’s volleyball schedule page.
