Softball

This weekend could go a long way toward determining the 2011 Big West softball race as the league’s top four teams battle for separation with only three weeks left in the regular season.

The two teams tied atop the conference standings will meet in an enormous series as Pacific comes down to Orange County to tangle with Cal State Fullerton. The duo sports 9-3 records and a series win would be big going forward for tiebreaker purposes.

Meanwhile, another key Big West series will take place as UC Santa Barbara hits the road to take on Long Beach State. The Gauchos and 49ers are tied for third at 8-4, just one game behind the co-leaders.

For the sixth year in a row, select games will be broadcast by the institutions on BigWest.TV, the conference's video streaming initiative in partnership with CBS College Sports.
