The BYU men's volleyball team has already clinched the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament. Now the top-ranked program in the country heads to California for matches against No. 7 UC Santa Barbara on Friday and No. 3 UCLA on Saturday.

Matches both nights are scheduled for 8 p.m. (MDT).

BYU, on an 11-match win streak, has spent five weeks atop the AVCA national poll, the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 since 2008 when the Cougars held the top spot for seven weeks. That BYU clinching of the conference's top seed March 30 was the earliest a No. 1 seed has ever been decided during the rally-scoring era.

The Cougars dropped just four sets in March. The MPSF Tournament is set to begin April 20.
