The Breakdown: How Big West teams fared versus their former MPSF rivals

Jonathan Bates | Off the Block associate editor

All regular season matches between the Big West and MPSF are now in the history book. The Big West went 28-18 versus the MPSF, due in part to the 9-3 record posted by UC Irvine and the 6-0 record posted by Long Beach State. Big West teams were 16-9 at home, while 11-9 on the road.

This is the inaugural season of the Big West as a men’s volleyball conference. The addition of the Big West resulted in a split in the MPSF with six Big West schools leaving the federation during the offseason.

Check out the team-by-team breakdown of Big West schools fared against the MPSF opponents in non-conference play this season.
