PROVO, Utah — After competing at the ITA Kick-off Weekend last weekend in Los Angeles, the No. 48 BYU men’s tennis team travels back to California to face the No. 18 Stanford Cardinal. The Cougars then return home to host Air Force on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at the Indoor Tennis Courts.
Friday’s match against Stanford will be the fourth consecutive ranked opponent BYU has played. The Cougars are 3-1 this year against ranked teams.
The Cardinal (2-1) were ranked No. 10 last week before falling to No. 26 Texas A&M on Friday. They improved their record with a victory over No. 29 Texas Tech on Saturday.
