Spring play launches at the Smith Fieldhouse on Feb. 24, at 1 p.m. MST, with a match against rival Utah. The Cougars last played the Utes in Salt Lake City during the 2017 season, picking up a victory in a five-set thriller.

BYU then travels to the University of Utah on March 9, to face the Utes in a rematch, beginning at 3 p.m.

The Cougars commence play at Weber State on March 13, at 3 p.m. BYU swept the Wildcats last year.

Play concludes with a March 30th match at Utah Valley, starting at 2 p.m. The Cougars beat the Wolverines in four sets in Orem last season.

In 2017, the Cougars finished with a 30-3 overall record, finishing in first place in the West Coast Conference for a fourth-consecutive year and advanced to the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament for a sixth-straight season.
