The Cougars are riding a 4-3-2 season record after their last two road games in Oklahoma became the first back-to-back losses for the program since the 2008 season.
BYU has recorded double-digit shots in all of its games this season, but one, and are led offensively by Jennie Marshall, Auna Doria, Colette Jepson and Jaiden Thornock who have all recorded two goals so far this year.
Senior goalkeeper McKinzie Olson is 14 saves and 9 shutouts away from becoming BYU's all-time career leader in those two categories. Olson has thus far recorded 853 minutes in front of the net and 39 saves for the Cougars.
Tuesday's game against the Vandals is the first-ever meeting between the two teams. Idaho is 3-4-2 this season after its most recent loss to Washington State at home. The Vandals finished the 2010 season with a 14-7 record for third place in the Western Athletic Conference.
Utah State and BYU have played eight times since 1996 with the Cougars coming away victorious in each meeting.
