The CSU volleyball team is hosting UNLV at 7 p.m. at Moby Arena. The Rams not only are celebrating their annual “Orange Out” by encouraging fans to wear orange, they are hosting “Social Media Night,” giving fans the opportunity to win a trip to Boise, Idaho, to watch the CSU volleyball and football teams take on Boise State.

Quest for the title

On top of the fan-friendly promotions, it’s a huge weekend for the Rams, who are seeking their 10th Mountain West championship and 18th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. CSU (16-8, 8-3 MW) currently is tied with UNLV for second place in the conference, one-half game behind San Diego State.

The Rams host Fresno State at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Bulldogs, who beat the Rams earlier this season in Fresno, Calif., are one game behind CSU and UNLV in fourth place.

If the Rams win their remaining five league matches they can do no worse than tie with San Diego State for the championship.

'Like' CSU volleyball

Social Media Night actually begins before tonight’s match. Fans who “like” CSU volleyball on Facebook  will have access to several great promotions, including a $1 off admission coupon and the chance to win a trip to Boise. One name will be drawn, and the winner and a guest will receive roundtrip airfare, lodging for two nights in Boise and tickets to see the Rams play Boise State on Nov. 17 in both volleyball and football.

The Rams will be led by seniors Brieon Paige, who leads the MW in hitting percentage, Dana Cranston, second in kills, and Megan Plourde, second in blocks.


Tickets are available online, at the door or at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office.
