PROVO – 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 its 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 Thursday 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.
Royce Hinton is the women's volleyball sports information director for BYU Athletic Communications.
