Last season, the BYU men's tennis team held an 18-7 record, with a 7-2 record in the West Coast Conference, putting them second in the conference and 67th in the NCAA. This season, the team is looking to raise the bar and come out on top this year. With four new athletes, Coach Brad Pearce said he is putting an emphasis on the physical and technical aspects of the sport.
BYU defeated No. 14 Boise State 28-25 in the Cougars' stormy homecoming game at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Oct. 19. The Cougars' meeting with the previously undefeated Broncos marked the teams' 10th meeting and the Cougars' third win in the series.
