BOISE, Idaho - The Middle Tennessee men's tennis team (8-11) travels to Idaho for two matches at Boise State this weekend. The Blue Raiders will face the host Broncos on Saturday at 7 p.m. CDT and Utah State at noon CDT.

The Blue Raiders travel west after three home wins last weekend at the Middle Tennessee Shootout, defeating Illinois State, UAB and South Alabama in the process. Junior Ettore Zito and sophomore Victor Cornea were both 3-0 in singles play, in addition to both posting 2-0 marks in doubles action.

No. 22 Boise State enters the weekend at 18-4, having had an eight-match win streak snapped by Stanford on Tuesday. Prior to the loss to the Cardinal, the Broncos had won 17 of 18.

Utah State, like Boise State also out of the Mountain West, is 9-8 on the year, having won its past two matches. The Aggies defeated Marquette on March 23 and Weber State on March 25, but have not played since.

Live stats will be available for Saturday's match through Boise State.

Following the weekend in Idaho, the Blue Raiders will close out the regular season at home with matches against USF (April 11) and UCF (April 13.)
