The BYU women's soccer team plays the University of Oregon tomorrow, Monday Sept. 24, so today they spent traveling to Oregon and get settled into their hotel. 

After traffic delayed the team's departure from Provo, they arrived at the airport with just enough time to run to the gate before their plane took off. A quiet flight landed them in Portland, Oregon, where they hopped on another bus and headed to the house of a friend of the team for some lunch. 

The girls went to church in Lake Oswego, Oregon, before getting back on the bus and driving two hours South to Eugene, Oregon, where they were finally able to get off the bus and relax in their hotel. 

Monday's game agains the Ducks starts at 7 p.m. PDT.
