Looking forward to Friday, Long Beach State has posted a 5-12 record on the season going 2-3 in their first five Big West matches. The Sharks are coming off a sweep of UC Riverside last weekend and have won two of their last three matches. The Titans are down in the all-time series with just five wins in 79 meetings in program history and have lost the last 13 matches.
Going into the weekend, CSUN is 6-11 overall on the season and is 1-4 in Big West action. The Matadors are coming off a five-set loss to UC Davis last weekend after sweeping the Highlanders the week before. In the all-time series, Fullerton trails 11-37 having lost the last 16 matches.
The Titans currently sit in a tie for sixth place with CSUN and UC Irvine in the Big West standings.
