PROVO, Utah – On top of the inaugural Big 12 schedule, BYU women’s soccer loaded up on its 2023 nonconference slate.
The headliner is a home match on South Field against the defending National Champion UCLA Bruins on August 31. It will be the last home game of the nonconference season for BYU.

BYU’s last matchup against UCLA was during the COVID spring season in 2021 in Los Angeles. UCLA won that match 2-1.
BYU opens the season with an intriguing matchup against the Saint Louis Billikens. It’s the first meeting between the two programs. Saint Louis is coming off a season where they finished in the national rankings last season. The game will take place at South Field in Provo on August 17.
Despite moving to the Big 12 Conference, BYU soccer maintains its in-state rivalry matches. The Cougars will face UVU in Orem on Saturday, September 2. Then a week later, BYU goes to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Utes.
BYU will complete the in-state tour the following Saturday, Sept. 16, when they go to Logan to take on Utah State. The Utah State match will occur two days after BYU opens Big 12 play against TCU in Provo on Sept. 14.
BYU also has nonconference matches against Cal State Fullerton, Long Beach State, and Boise State.
The Cougars will play a 10-game Big 12 schedule, with the season concluding at the Big 12 Tournament.
