LOGAN, Utah - No. 43 Utah State men's tennis (7-3, 1-0 MW) will take on No. 40 Oregon (8-2, 0-0 Pac-12) in Eugene on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 5:30 p.m. (MT). The match was an addition to the schedule as a replacement for the UTSA match that was cancelled due to weather.

"After having a really close match with Oregon last year, I'm expecting it to be a battle," head coach James Wilson said. "They have some very strong players and they are even tougher at home. Our guys have had good practices since our last match, and I'm confident they will compete hard."

In singles, USU freshman Jose Carvajal is 7-2 at the Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 spots and freshman Valdemar Holm is 6-1 at the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 spots. In doubles, Carvajal and senior Jaime Barajas are 5-2 at the No. 1 spot. Barajas posted a 6-0 mark in singles and doubles in the last three Utah State matches to earn both America First Credit Union USU Student Athlete of the Week and Mountain West Men's Tennis Player of the Week honors for matches played through Feb. 20.

Oregon leads Utah State 4-0 in program history. The teams last faced off in the 2016-17 season when the Ducks defeated the Aggies, 4-3. In singles, senior Cormac Clissold is 7-0 at the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 spots, sophomore Ty Gentry is 6-0 at the Nos. 5 and 6 spots, and junior Thomas Laurent, who is ranked No. 13 in the nation in singles, is 6-1 at the No. 1 spot. In doubles, Gentry and senior Simon Stevens are 7-1 at the Nos. 2 and 3 spots. Laurent and Clisslord, who are ranked No. 16 in the nation in doubles, are 5-2 at the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 spots.
