Good morning! Let’s get ready for some football with this video from last weekend’s win!

What are we pouring into today’s Brew?

🏈 Strive for five
🤽 Conference tournament time
⚔️ And much, much more!


🔼 For The Seniors. The Spartans are looking for their fifth-straight win on Senior Night tomorrow as they host San Diego State. Minds are set on becoming bowl eligible for the third time in the last four seasons, which would make Coach Brent Brennan the first head coach to lead the Spartans to three bowl games. Kickoff is at 7:30pm and you can get tickets right here. If you can’t make the game, you can tune in on CBS Sports.

🏆 Offensive line coach and run game coordinator Josh Oglesby is nominated for the 2023 Broyles Award, honoring college football’s top assistant coach!

🔼  Tourney Time. The men’s water polo team earned the 3-seed in the West Coast Conference Tournament taking place this weekend! They’ll play 6-seeded Pacific today at noon. If they win, they’ll play the winner of LMU vs. Air Force tomorrow at 11am. You can watch all of the games on ESPN+. Three Spartans were named to the WCC All-Conference teams. Bence Szabo was named First-Team, Mateja Bosic was named to the Second-Team, and Bredon Gyapjas received honorable mention.

🔼 Ended With A Win. The Spartans volleyball squad got a win over San Diego State on Senior Night last night. The four seniors honored before the match were Letizia Cammillucci, Yazmin Whiles, Jiana Lawson, and Lauren Conroy. This was the final match of the season for the Spartans.

🔼 Playin’ In Paradise. The men’s basketball team is in the U.S. Virgin Islands, but it’s not for a relaxing week on the beach. They’re playing in the 2023 Paradise Jam! They’ll start things off today at 12:15pm against Abilene Christian. The Spartans remaining opponents of the tournament are to be determined, but the field includes Norfolk State, Fordham, Hampton, Kent State, Missouri State, and Florida Gulf Coast. All games will be streamed on ESPN+.
