PROVO -- No. 23 BYU (1-0-0) plays its second home game of the season Tuesday against Idaho State (1-1-0) at 7 p.m., before traveling to Georgia to face the No. 18 Bulldogs (2-0-0) Friday at 7 p.m.

The Cougars pulled out a 1-0 win over Weber State in a four-hour home-opener on Saturday caused by lightening delays and stadium lighting malfunctions. BYU looks to strengthen its attack this week as the new mix of players find their rhythm together. The Cougars' starting lineup welcomes five new players, including two sophomores and two freshmen.

Tuesday's game will be the sixth meeting between BYU and Idaho State with the last encounter coming in 2004 when the Bengals defeated BYU 3-1 in Idaho. Friday's game will be the first matchup between Georgia and the Cougars.
