But the biggest matchup pits a top 10 Texas A&M squad against a red hot Pepperdine team. There will be a handful of “aces” in this series with both teams possessing top notch weekend rotations.
Two of the nation’s top matchups this weekend will feature Southern California teams on the road. No. 16 UCLA has its first road test as they travel to No. 9 Georgia and No. 19 Cal State Fullerton tries to bounce back from a Tuesday loss to USC with a strong series at No. 6 Texas A&M.
Two other schools, San Diego and Loyola Marymount head on the road to play a pair of traditional powers that have struggled early this season.
