Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The Brandon Bobcats men's volleyball team will have to wait nearly the whole volleyball season before they take on the team that beat them in last year's playoffs.
The Bobcats will take on the University of Winnipeg Wesmen January 24 in Winnipeg and then January 26 in Brandon in the annual home and home series.
Just like every year, the women's and men schedule will look exactly the same.
Brandon has back-to-back home dates at the Healthy Living Centre to open conference play with their first matches on October 19 against the Saskatchewan Huskies.
The Bobcats get a bye the next weekend before their second set of matches against the UBC Thunderbirds on November 2-3.
In all, the Calgary Dinos, Trinity Western Spartans, and MacEwan Griffins will also travel to Brandon to battle the Bobcats.
The matches on November 16 against the Dinos are matinees, giving school groups the chance to catch the Bobcats in action.
The Bobcat women's team went 10-14 last season, while the BU men's team hosted a conference quarter-final series after posting a record of 17-7.
