LOS ANGELES– The BYU men’s volleyball team took the previous top-ranked UCLA by a storm, making it the first series sweep in Los Angeles in program history.
MPSF player of the week Jake Langlois led the charge as the Cougars beat the Bruins 3 – 1. He credits solid serving from everyone to their successful weekend sweep and was shocked to hear they made history.
“After we did it, our coaches told us and we’re like… Really? I mean, BYU’s an awesome team and I guess we’ve just never been playing well at UCLA, so it felt really good to be the first team to do that,” Langlois said.
Langlois said they’re not looking too far ahead as their main focus is to just finish the regular season off with two wins tonight and tomorrow against USC. If they pull that off, they’ll lock down the number one seed and host the MPSF tournament since Stanford lost last night. This is huge considering BYU is 9-0 when playing at home in the MPSF playoffs since 2012.
Following conference play the high-flying Cougars start their quest for their first national title since 2004.
