UVU defeated BYU earlier this year
The game will be played on Friday, November 11, on South Field in Provo at 6 p.m. (MT). Earlier this season, the two programs met in Provo on September 10. Utah Valley won that match, 4 to 2. It’s the last time BYU lost this season.
Dating back to 2012, BYU leads the all-time series against Utah Valley, 6-1.
BYU soccer is the defending National Runner-Up
BYU comes into the 2022 NCAA Tournament as the defending National Runner-Up after falling to Florida State last season in the College Cup in penalty kicks. Jennifer Rockwood’s squad has a record of 10-2-6 this season.
Utah Valley enters the tournament with a 14-4-3 record. The Wolverines lost to New Mexico State yesterday in the WAC Tournament Championship game.
BYU has won five of its last six matches, with the lone non-victory coming in a scoreless tie to WCC Champion Santa Clara on October 29.
The BYU/Utah Valley winner will face the team that advances from the San Jose State/Stanford matchup. Perennial soccer powerhouse Stanford is a 3-seed in this year’s tournament.
