PROVO -- The BYU women's softball team (24-23, 3-1) hosts in-state opponent Southern Utah in a doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, before continuing Mountain West Conference play with a doubleheader at UNLV on Thursday and two additional games at No. 19 San Diego State on Friday and Saturday.
Tuesday's twinbill will be the fourth and fifth meeting between the Cougars and the T-birds this season. In all three games earlier in the season BYU came out on top. The Cougs lead the all-time series 29-4, and hold a 13-1 record in the last three years.
The Cougars come into conference play second in the standings, just behind San Diego State (29-10, 2-0), while UNLV (19-21-1, 0-2) comes in last in the conference.
The game against the Aztecs will mark BYU's eighth game against a ranked opponent this season. The Cougars are 1-6 against their ranked foes, but five of the losses came against top-10 teams. They are 1-1 against ranked opponents outside of the top-10.
