Los Angeles - The UCLA men's water polo team has moved the date of its annual Alumni Game from Saturday, Sept. 9 to Saturday, Oct. 7. The Bruins were tentatively slated to host the U.S. National Team on Oct. 7; instead, UCLA will host its alumni contest that day, prior to the football team's home game against Stanford at the Rose Bowl. Game time will be announced at a later date.
Third-ranked UCLA will open the 2006 season on Thursday, Sept. 14, against Cal Baptist at UCLA's Sunset Canyon Recreation Center at 4:30 p.m. Eighth-year head coach Adam Krikorian and the Bruins return seven seniors and six juniors this season, as UCLA looks to capture its ninth NCAA championship in program history.
