No. 12 BYU sweeps UCF in back-to-back matches in Orlando

No. 12 BYU went into Orlando as the second highest ranked team to face the Knights at The Venue and came out with two sweeps on back-to-back nights.

The Cougars were rolling and gave little room for UCF to even come close. 

BYU finished the series with a season high 13 aces in match one on Thursday, and notched 43 kills on .400 hitting, tying as second highest on the season. The Cougars managed to keep control of the game with only five attack errors. 

The Cougars were led by none other than outside hitter, Erin Livingston in both matches against the Knights. In match one, Livingston tallied a game high 17 kills on a .500 clip, making it her 23rd match with double-digit kills this season and eighth in a row.

In match two on Friday, Livingston did not let off the gas as she brought in a match high 17 kills on a .390 clip while recording a career-high five aces.

Other notable contributors were setter Whitney Bower and libero Kamaile Hiapo brought in 66 assists and 29 digs, respectively between both matches. Middle blockers Whitney McEwan Llarenas and Mia Lee also kept the Knights from gaining traction with a combined 10 blocks up front.

BYU will return home for a senior night matchup against No. 14 Kansas on Friday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. MST. The match will be streamed on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
