PROVO -- The undefeated No. 16 BYU women's soccer team will host in-state rival Utah State on Thursday at 7 p.m. at South Stadium, then hit the road to face Arizona in Tucson at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

BYU's Katie Larkin leads the team in scoring with eight goals and was named Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Week Monday. Fellow Hermann Trophy candidate Jessica Harmon-Carter and goalkeeper Erika Woodbury anchor the defense that has only allowed two goals in ten games.

Junior forward Katie Fellows, who suffered a concussion against Washington on Sept. 24 will likely see at least some playing time in this week's games.

Senior Dana Peart leads the Aggies in goals scored with five on the season and has 15 in her career. In total, Utah State has been outscored 15-11 this season.

The Wildcats are led by freshman Jasmin Day who has four goals, nine points, and 14 shots on the year. She has played in all ten games, but has only started seven.

Thursday's game against Utah State will be "Thirsty Thursday", and fans can buy hot chocolate and water for just $1 apiece. BYU "Y" lot parking will be available after 4 p.m., and ticket prices are $5 for adults and $4 for children. Families, recreation soccer teams, high school teams, and singles wards can all get in for $15 dollars.
