PROVO -- The No. 10 BYU women's soccer team will face two competitive soccer programs this week, starting Thursday against LSU and continuing on Saturday against Marquette as they seek to defend their undefeated 5-0 record.

Both games will be played on South Field with a 7 p.m. kick-off. Live stats are available for both games through the women's schedule page with Thursday's game also being aired live on BYUtv and Saturday's match aired live on BYU Radio.

In conjunction with Thursday's game, the Cougars are teaming up with the Utah Youth Soccer Association to celebrate Youth Soccer Month.

The event begins with a FREE CLINIC from 5:30-6:30 at Hawes Field (west of Indoor Practice Facility). All youth ages 4-18 are admitted to the clinic, run by Utah Youth Soccer coaches and professional soccer players. The first 200 youth are admitted for FREE to the BYU vs LSU game at 7 p.m. All youth wearing a UYSA jersey are admitted for $1.

Bring the whole family, for prizes, halftime contests and food during the game.

Youth Soccer Month is dedicated to increasing awareness of the benefits of playing youth soccer in America. The Cougars are proud to support this effort and further the work of the Utah Youth Soccer Association.

Come see the Cougars, and celebrate the No. 1 youth sport in America, on South Field.

The Cougars are starting this season with their best record since the 2005 campaign when they started on a 9-0 streak. With two games on the road, three at home and two wins over Top-25 ranked teams, BYU finds itself with its highest ranking this season at No. 10 in this week's Soccer America poll.

MWC Offensive Player of the Week Jennie Marshall leads BYU's offense with six goals and 16 shots. Marshall received her first career Player of the Week award and was named to two National Teams of the Week after her performance last week in helping BYU bring home two more victories.

The LSU Tigers come to Provo for the first time on a three-game losing streak with a 1-3-0 record this year after its most recent 0-1 loss to Virginia Tech. LSU was selected to finish second in the Western Division of the SEC in this year’s preseason coaches poll with four first-place votes coming their way.

The Marquette Golden Eagles will also play on South Field for the first time this week and are traveling with a 3-2-1 record. The Golden Eagles were selected to finish first in the American Division of the Big East Conference in this year’s preseason coaches poll.

BYU met both of these teams on the road last year, finishing a combined 0-2 against them.

After this week, BYU will play two games in Texas and one in Logan, Utah, before returning to South Field on Sept. 29 against Idaho State.
