PROVO, Utahย – The first sports team at Brigham Young University to compete as a Big 12 team will be BYU Women’s Soccer.

BYU’s powerhouse soccer program received its first Big 12 schedule on Monday. The Cougars open Big 12 play on Thursday, September 14, against former Mountain West rival TCU at South Field.

BYU then goes on the road for a Texas two-step at Baylor in Waco on September 21, then at defending Big 12 champion Texas on Monday, September 25.

Additional home games include matches against Cincinnati, Texas Tech, Kansas State, and UCF.

The 10-game league schedule will have no Saturday matchups. Instead, BYU will play on Thursdays and Mondays. That is a significant change from being in the West Coast Conference, where many matches occurred on a Saturday, conflicting with BYU football. At the same time, the rest of the Big 12 Conference will have a Thursday and Sunday setup.

Four of the ten teams on BYU’s schedule are programs the Cougars have never faced. Those teams include Cincinnati, Iowa State, Texas Tech, and UCF.

Another difference in moving to the Big 12 from the WCC is a conference tournament. The Big 12 hosts a league soccer tournament in Round Rock, Texas. It will occur at the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex from Saturday, October 28, Monday, October 30 to November 1, and Saturday, November 4, for the Championship.

Last season, BYU women’s soccer advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Women’s Soccer tournament before falling to North Carolina in Chapel Hill. BYU had a record of 11-3-7 in 2022.
