Volleyball ready for Eagle tangle before Viking showdown
GREELEY, Colo. --
- With Eastern Washington and Portland up this week, Northern Colorado might have fallen victim to “looking ahead” last week against Montana and Montana State. Didn’t happen, though, and now the Bears get the Eagles and Viks.
- Both this weekend’s matches have been circled on Northern Colorado’s calendar since the summer, and, of course, this weekend shapes up as a potential program-changer for the Bears. Two wins, and NC is in prime conference-title shape.
- Northern Colorado has just two conference wins in four seasons against the Eagles and the Viks. Those are the fewest for the Bears against any of the other Big Sky Conference programs.
- This trip figures to offer Northern Colorado a preview of what to expect in two weeks during the Big Sky Conference tournament. NC secured a berth in that field last week and will head back to Cheney on Thanksgiving Thursday.
