PROVO -- Ready to play the second and third game in their series of five home games, the No. 12 BYU women's soccer (3-0) will host No. 14 Northwestern on Tuesday, August 31, and No. 21 Washington State on Friday, September 3, at South Field.

The BYU women are posting an undefeated start to their 2010 season with wins over Long Beach State, Cal State Fullerton and Weber State.

Six Cougars have tallied goals to the 10-goal total for the team this season with Jennie Marshall and Kassidy Shumway giving three each to lead the team. Carlee Payne, Jessica Ringwood, Auna Janis-Doria and Lindsi Lisonbee have each contributed a goal to the total also.

In the Soccer America poll released today, the Cougars improved their No. 14-ranking to No. 12 after their perfect start to the season.

On Tuesday the Cougars will take on the No. 14 Northwestern Wildcats, who are coming off a huge 1-0 win over No. 3 UCLA for their biggest win in school history. It's the first time UCLA has lost to an un-ranked opponent since 2006. The Wildcats returned seven starters and are currently 2-0-1 this season.

Friday's game will feature a Cougar Clash with BYU hosting the No. 21 Washington State Cougars, who also returned seven starters this season and are posting a 1-3-0 record. WSU freshman goalkeeper Gurveen Clair was named to the U-20 Canadian National team earlier this month and the Cougars were tabbed to finished second in this year's preseason coaches poll.

Both games this week are set for a 7 p.m. start on South Field. Friday's game against Washington State will also be broadcast live on BYUtv.
