Boise State (9-5) at New Mexico (9-5) – 9 pm ET (MW Network/Live Stats)

The match of the day features two 9-5 teams from the Mountain West Conference looking to jockey themselves in strong positioning towards a conference crown.

The visitor, Boise State, comes in at 9-5 but 2-0 in conference play. Ever since they lost in five sets to Minnesota and were swept by Oregon State, they’ve won all nine sets they have played in, including their six last week. Watch out for Sierra Nobley in the match as she leads the team with 4.88 kills per set and is second on the team with 2.86 digs per set.

New Mexico had an 8-4 non-conference slate before splitting their first Mountain West matches last week. The win came in a sweep at Wyoming while the loss was a respectable one to a ranked Colorado State bunch. Lauren Twitty will look to continue her strong play as she is averaging 6.50 kills, 2.0 digs and 1.0 blocks per set through two matches of conference action.


Syracuse (9-6) at Duke (10-3) – 6:30 pm ET (ACC Network Extra/Live Stats)

Duke earned a pair of wins to start their ACC season over Wake Forest and Boston College as they now continue their four-match home stand against Syracuse. The Orange were up and down in the non-conference slate as they opened up ACC play with a win over Boston College before falling to a solid Pittsburgh squad. With the ACC wide open, both of these teams will look to take advantage of this one and prove they can stick around the top.
