LETS TAILGATE: Students, be sure to arrive early for a pre-game tailgate/BBQ, courtesy of the Triton Tide, which starts at 4:30 on Warren Field!

HOME OPENER HISTORY: The Tritons will begin their home slate a bit differently than previous seasons, but exciting none the less. Typically known to open each season by hosting the Triton Invitational, UCSD will welcome conference foe Loyola Marymount to Canyonview after three straight weeks of road play, seven games in all.

THIS WEEK IN MEN'S WATER POLO HISTORY: The Tritons seem to have found themselves in a bit of a pattern when playing the Lions. UCSD has taken one win for every three of LMU's since the start of the 2010 season, including a 10-6 loss earlier this season at the Norcal Invite. In following the sequence, and looking to break the streak, the Tritons prepare to earn a victory at home on Wednesday.

WHEN WE LAST MET LOYOLA MARYMOUNT: The two squads met up during the second day of the Norcal Invite at Stanford on Sept. 16. The Tritons struck early, outscoring the Lions 5-4 by halftime. LMU's defense got stronger as the game unrolled and eventually held UCSD off completely as the Tritons were unable to score in the fourth quarter. The Lions went on to a 10-6 win. UCSD was led by Josh Stiling with three goals.

...AND THE ACTION CONTINUES: The UC San Diego men's water polo team will travel to UC Santa Barbara this weekend to play in the Socal Tournament. Very similar to the Norcal Invite the Tritons visited earlier this month, the team will participate in bracket play. UCSD is paired up with the hosting Guachos, Stanford and Princeton.
