UCLA-Tennessee-WSU Meet Program Get Acrobat Reader

The UCLA men's and women's track and field team will play host to the Tennessee Volunteers and Washington State Cougars in a double dual at Drake Stadium on Saturday. Each team will be matched up head-to-head in a typical scored meet (5-3-1/5-0 relays). Last year, the Bruins hosted Tennessee with the men defeating the Vols 111-50 and the women just barely falling to the Lady Vols 82-81.

The men's team is 11-1 all-time against Tennessee and 6-0 against the Cougs. The women are 2-0 against Washington State and the series with the Vols is tied at 1-1.

The Bruin men hosted Texas, the pre-season No. 7 team, last weekend and won by a score of 85-77. The men have not lost in Drake Stadium since 2010.

Events get underway with the women's hammer at 10:00 am, while running events begin at 2:05 pm with the 4x100m relay. For a complete schedule of events, click here.
