SDSU continues play into February with its fourth and fifth straight home contests against Long Beach State and California on Feb. 1 and 2, respectively.
Following its match against the Golden Bears, the Aztecs play their first road match when they visit Cal State Fullerton on Feb. 9, returning home to face Cal Poly at the ATC the next day, Feb. 10. The team plays two more home duals against Arizona State (Feb. 16) and Hawai’i (Feb. 19) prior to its remaining non-conference road matches.
SDSU finishes play for the month of February by making a trip across I-8 to the University of San Diego on Feb. 23 and travels to Los Angeles to play the University of Southern California on Feb. 26.
