The Utes will contest Boise State at 2 p.m. on Friday and Penn at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Both matches will be played at the Boas Tennis Center weather permitting. Live stats will be available here.

The Utes are coming off two wins last Saturday against Idaho State and Boise State. Utah is 1-0 at neutral sites this season and 2-2 against ranked opponents. Utah’s record against Boise State since 1999 is 2-13. The Utes last played Penn in 2007 which resulted in a 6-1 loss.

“Boise State is always a very tough match for us, but it’s a great opportunity to play two ranked opponents on the road,” said head coach Roeland Brateanu.

This is the first home match of the season for the 73rd ranked Boise State Broncos. Boise State is 1-6 against nationally ranked opponents this season. The Broncos recently lost road matches to  No. 35 Auburn and No. 24 South Florida by scores of 4-1 and 4-0 respectively.
