UNLV scored in seven of the nine innings during Monday’s game, while the Cougars scored only three points off of Adam Law’s three-run double.

“I felt we weren’t ready to play,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “We didn’t show maturity. We have to get ready in one day for Kansas.”

BYU will host a four-game series against the University of Kansas beginning Wednesday evening.

KU holds a 13–6 record compared to BYU’s 9–11 record, but the two teams have only played each other twice before, the most recent being in a 1994 regional game, when the Cougars defeated the Jayhawks 8–3.

The Jayhawks last defeated the Cougars 4–3 in an invitational game in 1968.

The games against KU will be held at Miller Park on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 6 p.m., and Saturday’s game will begin at 1 p.m.
