LAST TIME ON THE FIELD. BYU opened WCC action at Santa Clara last week and walked away with a 2-2 draw. After the Broncos scored a pair of goals in the first half to take a 2-0 lead the Cougars fought back to take the game into overtime.

Neither team was able to score in overtime as the conference co-favorites each earned a point.
