BYU fell to San Diego (18-25, 25-23, 24-26, 25-16, 9-15) in a five-set match between the top two teams of the West Coast Conference on Friday, Nov. 15. Before the game, the teams were tied, the Cougars at a 22-3 overall record and 13-1 in the WCC with the Toreros sitting a at 20-5 overall record and 13-1 in the WCC. San Diego now sits comfortably atop the WCC with the win and has a strong chance of capturing the WCC title.
