On Friday night, the Bears managed to sweep UCLA in 3 sets for the first time in school history (and only the 6th win over UCLA). What was perhaps the most impressive feat was how the Bears managed to win two hotly contested sets initially where they still executed flawless underpressure and even managed to repeated comeback from being two points behind.

Watch highlights from Cal's upset win over No.16 UCLA here:

Can the Bears keep up their impressive play and give USC a run this afternoon? USC has been dominant so far this year.
