Volleyball is ready for big week

Updated October 16, 2009

Volleyball will host two traditional conference rivals this week. Matches against BYU and Utah have Mountain West Championship implications for the 14-3 (6-0 in the MWC) Rams!

Unbeaten in conference play

The Rams' winning streak is at 11, and they remain unbeaten in the Mountain West Conference.

The Colorado State volleyball team used a stellar effort Saturday afternoon by Tessa Nelson to win its 10th consecutive match.

The Rams’ 11-match winning streak is the team’s longest since last season, when CSU rattled off 13 straight between Sept. 6 and Oct. 12. It also marks the third time in the last four seasons that CSU has won at least 10 consecutive matches in a season.

The Rams, who have played three straight vs. MWC foes on the road, will now return to Moby Arena this week for a pair of tough conference matches, vs. BYU (9-8, 4-2 MWC) on Thursday, and Utah (12-6, 5-1 MWC) on Saturday.

Students get in free with CSU ID

All full-time/full-fee paying students are entitled to receive one free ticket to all Colorado State home events while supplies last. Students get in free by showing their student ID at the gate.
