Tennessee, Baylor await Cougars in Week 2
PROVO, Utah – No. 23 BYU women's soccer continues its season looking for its first victory after consecutive ties as the Cougars go on the road at Tennessee and face Baylor at home on Labor Day.
BYU tied both its games in the opening weekend. A 1-1 tie at Cal State Fullerton on Friday was followed by a scoreless draw in the regular season home opener Monday against Washington State.
On Friday, BYU travels to Knoxville, Tennessee, to face the Volunteers (1-1-0) at 7 p.m. EDT. The game can be streamed on SEC Network+ which can be accessed via WatchESPN.
Tennessee played both its games last week in Madison, Wisconsin, the first was a 5-0 win over Milwaukee and the second was a 2-1 overtime loss to host Wisconsin. The winning goal came just two minutes into overtime after the Volunteers equalized in the 63rd minute.
For Tennessee, MAC Hermann Trophy nominee Hannah Wilkinson is one of two players with two goals through two games, the other is sophomore Amy Neal. In addition, freshman Carlyn Baldwin played for the U.S. U-20 team at the U-20 Women's World Cup last month. Baldwin played in two games for the United States and has played in both games so far for Tennessee.
South Field will play host to Baylor this Labor Day with a 1 p.m. MDT kickoff. The game will be broadcast on BYUtv and simulcast on BYU Radio on Sirius XM channel 143. The Cougar IMG Sports Network will have live streaming audio on BYUcougars.com and the BYU Cougars app.
Baylor opened its season with two wins at home, a 1-0 overtime victory against Rice and a 2-0 win over Houston Baptist. The Bears will take on Utah Valley University on Friday before playing BYU on Monday. Last season, BYU was Baylor's only nonconference loss as the Cougars won 2-1.
