Utah State announces volleyball schedule
Utah State's volleyball team starts its new era in the Wayne Estes Center on Aug. 29 when it opens the season by hosting Idaho State, Oregon State and Saint Mary's in a three-day tournament.
The Aggies announced their schedule on Wednesday.
Highlights on the schedule include a September tournament at Hawaii, a Sept. 17 home match against Utah and the conference opener against defending league champ Colorado State on Sept. 25.
The Aggies have earned a 114-47 record over the last 15 seasons at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, but are moving their home matches to the recently opened Wayne Estes Center which features a 1,400-seat venue.<
The Aggies went 20-11 last season, including a 13-7 mark in the MWC to finish third.
USU hopes it can do even better in 2014-15 with five starters returning, including all-MWC honoree Elle Brainard.
