PROVO -- After playing five straight home games the BYU women's soccer team will now travel South to play two games in Texas this weekend, starting Saturday against Rice University and then Monday against No. 20 University of Texas. Both games are set to play at 7 p.m. CT.
The Cougars are traveling with an undefeated 6-0-1 record after their first tie of the season came against LSU on Sept. 9. The No. 9 ranking from Soccer America was released Monday and is one of the highest rankings BYU has received this early in the season.
Forward Jennie Marshall leads the Cougar offense with six goals on the year and teammate senior Kassidy Shumway has three.
Saturday's match-up will be the first time the Rice Owls and Cougars have ever played each other. The Owls are posting a 3-4-0 record this season after its most recent 1-0 loss at Oklahoma.
The No. 20 (Soccer Times) Longhorns and No. 9 Cougars are meeting Monday for the fourth time in BYU program history. Their last meeting was in the first round of the 2007 NCAA tournament when the Longhorns came away with the 2-0 victory. This season, Texas is carrying a 5-1-1 record with its most recent 4-0 shutout win coming over William & Mary.
BYU's overall road record is 119-49-18 and 2-0 this season under head coach Jennifer Rockwood.
