BYU hosts rival Utah
The No. 6 BYU women's soccer team will play its rival the University of Utah in the Deseret First Duel on Friday Sep. 6 at 7 p.m. on South Field.
The Cougars (3-0-0) defeated LSU 4-2 on the road on Labor Day and set a new home attendance record against Nebraska on Aug. 31 in a 3-0 win. The shutout was also the program's 100th home shutout.
Utah played Cal State Fullerton to a scoreless draw on the road Aug. 30. The Utes (1-0-2) have yet to play a home game while beating Western Kentucky and drawing Kentucky on the road. Utah was picked ninth in the Pac-12.
The Cougars were picked third in the West Coast Conference this season. BYU had a five-game winning streak snapped last season in Salt Lake City as Utah won 1-0. The loss was the only regular season defeat for the Cougars in 2012.
Following Utah, BYU will face another Pac-12 opponent as they travel to Oregon on Sep. 12.
After breaking the attendance record against Nebraska, Friday's rivalry game will be no different. Fans are strongly encouraged to purchase a reserved chair for $7 from the BYU ticket office.
BYU women’s soccer head coach Jennifer Rockwood has announced the promotion of Brent Anderson to associate head coach.
