PROVO, Utah – In a week with just one game, BYU jumped up to No. 3 in the polls and played what head coach Jennifer Rockwood said was its best game of the season.

Thursday's game with Santa Clara was hard-fought, as has been the case each time the two teams have met. The Broncos left Provo with a 0-0 tie as the Cougars improved their unbeaten streak to nine games. Despite not getting the win, Rockwood was satisfied with how her team played.

How did you spend your offseason?
We trained in the morning and I worked at Pelion, a venture capital up in Salt Lake. I started working for one of their portfolio companies, which is a drone company, and that was a blast.
