PROVO -- After moving back into the Nation's Top 10, the No. 8 BYU women's soccer team will take its game on the road with match-ups this week on Thursday and Saturday against TCU and New Mexico, respectively.
The Cougars are traveling with an 11-1-1 overall record this season and an undefeated 2-0 conference record thus far. They’re most recently coming off a 2-1 victory over the Air Force Falcons.
The 2010 Cougar squad, and defending 2009 regular season champions, were picked in this year's preseason coaches poll to again finish first in the regular season.
Junior Jennie Marshall leads the Cougar offense with seven goals and senior teammate Kassidy Shumway follows closely with six of her own. Shumway leads the team with 17 total points in 13 games.
Nine different players have recorded at least one goal for the Cougars this season for a total goal count of 31. When last year’s squad was ready to play its third conference game of the season, its total goal count was 21.
TCU will host the Cougars with a 7-6-1, 1-1-0 record and are on a two-game winning streak after victories over UNLV and Houston Baptist. Jordan Calhoun leads the Horned Frogs with six goals and 15 points this season.
New Mexico is currently 8-1-3 overall and also an undefeated 2-0 in conference play. Jennifer Williams leads the Lobos’ offense with seven goals and 18 points this season after 12 games.
