LAST TIME OUT: Boise State women's soccer split its first road swing of Mountain West play, using a historic individual performance to beat Colorado College 3-0, before falling to Air Force, 2-0. Freshman Raimee Sherle scored three second-half goals against the Tigers to record the sixth hat trick in Boise State history and the first since 2010.

ABOUT SAN JOSÉ STATE: The Spartans suffered their first MW loss Friday, against New Mexico but rebounded with a resounding 4-0 win Sunday, against San Diego State to sit at 3-1-0 in league play through two weekends. Alexis Venegas has tallied three goals and an assist in MW play.
All-Time Series: Boise State leads 8-6-2. SJSU has won four of the last five meetings, including the past two. The Broncos are 5-1-1 all-time against the Spartans in Boise.

ABOUT FRESNO STATE: The Bulldogs tallied their first four points of MW play last weekend with a win against New Mexico and a draw against San Diego State. Myra Delgadillo leads the team with two goals and two assists in league play.
All-Time Series: Fresno State leads 8-7-2. The Bulldogs claimed a 4-1 win last year. The Broncos are 3-0-1 in home matches against Fresno State since 2007.

PERFECT START: Boise State started 3-0 in conference play for the first time as a member of the Mountain West. It is the second time in program history the Broncos have started league play 3-0 in any conference, matching the 2007 squad's start in the WAC. That year the Broncos went 5-1-1 in league play, starting 4-0-1 with wins in the first three matches. The only other time the Broncos started league play unbeaten through three matches was 2004 in the WAC, when Boise State started 2-0-1. That team extended its unbeaten streak to four to start conference play at 3-0-1.

SHERLE'S HAT TRICK: Freshman Raimee Sherle scored three second-half goals at Colorado College (Sept. 30), to record the sixth hat trick in Boise State history and the first since 2010 (Shannon Saxton, Oct. 1).
More Notes:
-13th hat trick in a conference match in Mountain West history.
-Ninth hat trick by a MW freshman in any match, fourth in a conference match.
-Second hat trick by a Boise State freshman (Shannon Saxton, 2007).
-Four of Boise State's six hat tricks have been scored away from home.
-Second time in program history a Bronco has scored three consecutive goals (no other goal by a Bronco or opponent in between; Shannon Saxton, 2007).

SECOND HALF STRIKES: Raimee Sherle scored all three of her goals against Colorado College in the second half, becoming the second Bronco in program history to record three goals in a half. Shannon Saxton scored three times in the second half against Southern Utah (Sept. 9, 2007).

FAST HAT TRICK: Raimee Sherle's three goals came in a span of 20:14, the third-fastest three-goal stretch in program history. Shannon Saxton scored four times against Southern Utah (Sept. 9, 2007). Saxton's first three goals were scored in 15:47. Her second, third and fourth goals came in a span of 7:46 (all in the second half).

FAST OUT OF THE GATE: Raimee Sherle's first of three goals against Colorado College (Sept. 30) came in the 46th minute, just 39 seconds into the second half. It is the second fastest goal to start a second half in program history. Monica Almaraz scored 25 seconds into the second half at Idaho State (Sept. 3, 2000).

TUCKER AMONG LEADERS: Kayla Tucker is Boise State's active leader in points (32), goals (nine) and assists (14). Her 14 career assists give her the second most in program history. She is just outside the top 10 in points and goals.
