However, they may have found their groove of late and are off to a 2-0 conference start. The Gauchos, meanwhile, are a top-10 squad riding high on a 3-0 drubbing of national powerhouse Indiana on national television. But you can bet the farm that both teams will come out fired up and ready to give it their all.

After taking fifth place in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament last year, the #6 UCSB men’s water polo team (5-3 overall) is poised to have a strong 2009 campaign and expectations are high.
