LAST TIME OUT: Boise State picked up its first Mountain West win of the season Friday, against Colorado State. The Broncos won 4-1, scoring the final three goals to run away from the Rams. Shannon Schueren scored twice to put the game away. Boise State split the weekend when Wyoming took a 1-0 win Sunday, with a goal in the 104th minute to claim the double-overtime victory.
 
ABOUT FRESNO STATE: Fresno State entered this season having to replace 13 letterwinners from last year's second-place squad. A win to open the year was followed by 10-consecutive losses. The Bulldogs have rebounded recently, defeating UNLV and Nevada last week to even their conference record at 2-2. Jaycee Bingham has scored eight of the team's 15 goals.
All-Time Series: Fresno State leads 7-6-2. The Broncos have gone 4-1-1 in the last six meetings, including a thrilling win in the MW Championship last season.
 
ABOUT SAN JOSE STATE: The Spartans dropped both matches last week against the Nevada schools, falling to 0-3-1 in MW play. The draw came against New Mexico. SJSU defeated Portland State earlier this year, a team the Broncos tied. The Spartans have been outscored 12-9 this season.
All-Time Series: Boise State leads 8-4-2. All 14 matches have been played as league opponents. The Broncos won last season, 3-0.
 
ANTICIPATED REMATCH: Boise State and Fresno State played a match for the ages at last season's Mountain West Championship. The Broncos defeated the Bulldogs 2-1, in double overtime in the semifinals to advance to the title game. Just as it looked like the game was destined for penalty kicks, KT Clayton scored the winning goal in the 109th minute. With the game clock ticking down, Gabby Garcia headed the ball in the Bronco half towards the left flank. Clayton streaked down the left side and beat the lone Bulldog defender, juked the keeper and buried the ball in the back post for the win and a spot in the championship match. Fresno State had won the regular-season meeting, 2-1, and went on to earn the No. 2 seed in the tournament. Boise State was the No. 3 seed.
 
SCHUER THING: Boise State senior midfielder Shannon Schueren recently took a big leap in the all-time scoring ranks at Boise State. Schueren scored three goals in two games (1 at Colorado College, and 2 against Colorado State), to give her 17 goals and 40 points in her career. Schueren now ranks third in Boise State history in goals scored and is tied for third in points.
 
FOUR ON THE BOARD: Boise State has scored four goals in a match twice this season, winning both games 4-1. The Broncos tallied four goals against Idaho State (Sept. 7), with two each from Brooke Heidemann and KT Clayton. They repeated the feat Oct. 3, against Colorado State. Shannon Schueren scored twice in the match, while Heidemann and Dani Brown added one each. Both matches were at home. The Broncos did not reach four goals in a match last season, in Jim Thomas' first year.
 
DOUBLE DOUBLE: Juniors Brooke Heidemann and KT Clayton each scored two goals against Idaho State (Sept. 7). It is the first time two Broncos have scored multiple goals in the same match since Oct. 8, 2010, against New Mexico State (Shannon Saxton and Cheyenne Jones).
