It will be light and fun week in the Pac-12 pools.

There are just two meets on the schedule and one is a designed fun meet, but between rivals.

The Cal men host Stanford in their annual Triple Distance Meet on Friday. The unique Triple Distance Meet format that crowned winners based on a three-race cumulative time in each stroke and has been a staple of the Cal-Stanford men’s rivalry.

Last year, Cal won four combined events and two relays.

It should be another fun and fast meet with the Golden Bears ranked No. 2 and Stanford ranked No. 4.

Yes, this meet is always fun, but both team still want to win. It is a race-minded, no pressure meet at its best.

The rivals will meet in an actual dual meet on Feb. 17.

The other Pac-12 meet this week pits Oregon State against Seattle on Saturday.
