PROVO -- The BYU women's soccer team kicks off its 2003 season tomorrow with the annual Blue and White Game in Provo at South Stadium.

The Cougars are the four-time defending Mountain West Conference champions and are looking to remain the only team in MWC history to win the title.

This season the Cougars return eight starters from last season's team including senior All-American Aleisha Rose, and MWC Freshman of the Year Brooke Bowman.

The Blue and White Game is an inter-squad scrimmage that is open to the public to give the fans a sneak-peek into the upcoming season.

Kick off is set for 7:00 p.m. (MDT) at South Stadium, formerly South Field, located just south of the Smith Field House and admission is free.

BYU will also play host to Nevada-Reno in an exhibition game to be held on August 22 at South Stadium at 7:00 p.m. (MDT).
