Fans of great volleyball are in for a treat here tonight and it’s not even Halloween.

McPherson College’s surprising Bulldogs will host KCAC leader Ottawa, which is in the midst of a perfect conference season.

The Bulldogs, who were last in the KCAC last year at 2-18, are 11-7 in the conference and 18-9 overall with much of the same cast of players. First-year coach Jessica Cleveland will certainly receive some votes for Coach of the Year.

Ottawa, though, is chasing history. The Braves are trying to complete a 22-0 run through the KCAC as they are 17-0. Overall, the Braves are 23-7.

If Ottawa wins tonight, Kansas Wesleyan is probably the only team with a chance to blemish the Braves’ record as the schedule is favorable.

The first serve is set for 7 p.m. at the Sport Center.
