The match against the Aggies will be Friday night at 7:00 p.m. while the match against the Highlanders will serve as the first leg of Saturday's Homecoming double-header with men's basketball beginning at 4:00 p.m.
The Titans are coming off a rough week dropping all three of their matches last week including the first matchup against UC Davis last Tuesday before falling to CSUN and Long Beach State over the weekend.
As the season enters the final stretch, Fullerton sits in seventh place in the Big West standings with a 3-9 conference record, 11-12 overall. This is the best season for the program since 2012.

Julia Crawford led the team with just nine kills on the night while Davis' Lauren Matias posted a match-high 24 kills at a .339 hit percentage.

Tyler Fezzey posted her career-high 14 kills while Crawford recorded a double-double with 12 kills and 12 digs. In 41 meetings against UC Riverside all-time, the Titans are 30-11 after losing their first matchup this season.
