UP NEXT: Boise State women's soccer opens Mountain West play hosting two perennial contenders. The Broncos (2-4-3) host San Diego State (4-3-0) Friday, before a Sunday tilt against New Mexico (2-5-0).

LAST TIME OUT: Boise State closed nonconference action with an impressive road weekend. The Broncos earned a 2-1 double-overtime win at Saint Mary's before adding a 0-0 draw at San Francisco. It marks the first time Boise State has earned a win or a draw on the road against a West Coast Conference foe.

ABOUT SAN DIEGO STATE: The three-time-defending MW Champion Aztecs are 4-3-0 and coming off a loss against UC Davis. SDSU has allowed just seven goals in seven matches, giving up nearly half of them in a 4-3 win against cross-town rival San Diego. A 2-0 win at then-No. 16 Kentucky highlights the nonconference slate.
All-Time Series: SDSU leads 3-2. The road team is 4-0 in the series during conference play.

ABOUT NEW MEXICO: The Lobos have played a demanding schedule featuring two ranked teams and three additional road matches at `Power 5' schools. UNM scored four of its six goals on the year in a 4-1 win against Idaho State. Claire Lynch has two goals.
All-Time Series: UNM leads 5-1. The Lobos knocked the Broncos out of the 2014 MW Tournament. Boise State's lone win came at home in 2013 in double overtime.

SHOTS FIRED: Boise State has outshot each of its last seven opponents and has led in shots on goal in the last five matches. The Broncos have attempted at least 12 shots each of the last seven matches, the first such streak since 2009.

TUCKER TORCHES GAELS: Kayla Tucker had a breakthrough match Sept. 18, at Saint Mary's. Tucker scored an incredible goal in the 62nd minute and assisted on Baylee Blaser's game-winning goal in the 106th minute. Head coach Jim Thomas described her left-footed 20-yard line drive under the crossbar as one of the best he's seen. The three points tied Tucker's career high and the assist was the 10th of her career, becoming just the seventh Bronco in program history to rack up double-digit assists.

BRONCO CONQUEST: Boise State's win at San Diego State Oct. 19, 2014, was its second road win against the Aztecs in as many trips (Oct. 16, 2011). Not an easy feat considering the Broncos were also the last Mountain West team to win a conference match at SDSU. Since Oct. 31, 2008, Boise State is 2-0-0 at SDSU. The rest of the Mountain West is 1-20-3 in conference matches, including schools no longer in the league. San Diego State has lost just 10 conference home matches since the inception of the MW in 1999.

BLANKING THE BEST: Not only did Boise State win at San Diego State and hand the Aztecs their first conference loss of the  2014 season, the Broncos won 2-0 with a rare shutout of the Aztecs. San Diego State had not been shut out in 27-straight Mountain West matches. Again, the last occurrence was Boise State's 1-0 win Oct. 16, 2011. It was the first time in the series between Boise State and San Diego State a match did not finish 1-0. The last time the Aztecs were shutout at home in a MW match by a school other than Boise State was Oct. 22, 2006.

CONFERENCE OPENERS: Boise State is 4-12-1 all-time in conference openers, with the last win coming in 2010. The Broncos have not won a Mountain West opener.

STARTING ON THE ROAD: In the 18-year history of Boise State women's soccer, 2015 marks just the fifth time the Broncos have their conference opener. This snaps a sixth-year streak of Boise State starting league play on the road. The Broncos last opened their conference slate at home in 2008, and previously did so in 2005, 2001 and 1998.
