Long Beach, Calif. - No. 7 Long Beach State men's water polo will open up MPSF play this two important matches, first traveling to No. 8 UC Irvine for a Black and Blur Rivalry game on Thursday night. The 49ers then return home to host No. 6 UC Santa Barbara at Noon on Saturday.
The first MPSF game of the season for Long Beach State will be a direct rematch of the team's last game. On Oct. 13, the 49ers closed out the SoCal Tournament with a 13-10 overtime victory against UC Irvine on the road, and will return to the Anteater Aquatics Complex to start conference play on Thursday night at 7 p.m.
After the team's trip down the 405, Long Beach State returns to the Campus Pool for the team's second home game of the season, hosting No. 6 UC Santa Barbara. The 49ers have had two cracks at defeating the Gauchos, but have fallen just short this season, losing 5-4 at the NorCal Tournament before falling 8-6 in overtime on Oct. 13 at the SoCal Tournament. That match is scheduled to start at Noon on Saturday, October 26.
The two games this week represent the start of Long Beach State's 10-game MPSF schedule. The 49ers will also host Cal, UC San Diego, UCLA and Stanford before traveling to the MPSF Tournament from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1.
