What to know: The rivalry will have a new look this year but anticipate the intensity to not drop at all between No. 3 USC and No. 11 UCLA. The Bruins enter this conference match with a starting lineup primarily comprised of freshmen and sophomores who will experience the rivalry for the first time in their college careers. UCLA has won two of its last three conference matches but is still winless against top-10 nationally ranked teams so far this season. This also will be the first time that USC setter Micah Christenson will face UCLA coach John Speraw since the All-American played for the coach on the U.S. Men’s National Team during the offseason. Christenson as the starting setter helped lead the United States to the nation’s first gold-medal finish at the FIVB World League since 2008. With the Trojans in his senior season, Christenson is among the national leaders with both a 10.52 assists per game average and 23 aces. USC, though, is on a two-match losing streak, including having a season-low .070 attack percentage in a loss to No. 8 UC Santa Barbara on Wednesday.

No. 6 Hawai’i (10-3, 7-2 MPSF) vs. No. 14 Cal State Northridge (5-9, 3-7 MPSF)

What to know: No. 7 Hawai’i will attempt to move into the top four of the MPSF standings and complete a two-match series sweep against No. 14 Cal State Northridge. Opposite Brook Sedore had match-high 18 kills as the Rainbow Warriors won the series opener in four games on Friday. Sedore was one of four Hawai’i players to finish with double-digit kills in the victory. In addition, libero Kolby Kanetake had a career-high 21 digs to help Hawai’i out-hit Cal State Northridge .217 to .126. The Matadors are on a four-match losing streak and have yet to win a road match against a nationally ranked team this season.
