SEASON SERIES
Idaho and New Mexico State split the regular season series, with each team winning on the road. NMSU beat Idaho in five sets on Sept. 15 in Moscow, and the Vandals won 3-0 in Las Cruces in the regular season finale on Nov. 15.

RECENT HISTORY
After tying for second place in the WAC last season, the Vandals and Aggies met in the 2011 WAC semifinals, which NMSU won 3-0.

FIRST TIME HERE
After playing in five WAC semifinals, Wednesday's match will be the first WAC Championship match for the Vandals.

WHAT'S AT STAKE
Wednesday's winner will earn a berth into the NCAA Tournament. Idaho has made six trips to the NCAA tournament, with a 2-6 record in the event. Idaho went four straight years from 1992-1995, and also made back-to-back trips in 2003 and 2004.

SO FAR SO GOOD
In the first two matches of the WAC tournament, Allison (Walker) Baker is averaging 4.67 kills, 3.33 digs and 0.44 blocks per set, while hitting .185 to help lead the Vandals to the finals.
