Provo, UT — BYU Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Matt Schneck announced the schedule for the upcoming 2011 spring season Friday in Provo. The schedule is highlighted by both challenging home and away games.
“We are extremely excited about our 2011 schedule”, said Schneck. “This will be one of the toughest schedules in BYU Lacrosse history.Â With 6 games against teams that finished in the top 10 of last year’s final season Division 1 Poll and a total of 10 games against teams that finished in the top 25 of last year’s final season Division 1 Poll, we will have our work cut out for us.”
The Cougars face-off first against Boise State in their home opener in an afternoon game on Feb. 5, followed by a three game road trip to California to face Loyola Marymount, University of California — Berkeley, and Claremont College.
After the opening road trip the Cougars welcome Simon Fraser University on Feb. 26.Â The Clan is the only Canadian team in the MCLA. BYU then hosts Minnesota Duluth on March 4, University of Colorado March 12, and San Diego on March 15. All three games are at North University Field in Provo, UT.
