Soccer team ready to kick off season
Utah State's soccer team kicks off the season, pun intended, with road matches at Arkansas on Friday and Missouri State on Sunday. The Aggies played Weber State to a 1-1 result in an exhibition match last week.
Last year Arkansas edged USU 3-2 in overtime. Sunday's meeting with Missouri State is the first for the Aggies.
USU hopes it can be a team to reckon with in the Mountain West this season with seven starters returning from last year's team that advanced to the semifinals of the league tournament and finished 10-7-5 overall.
The Aggies, who were picked to finish third in the league preseason poll behind San Diego State and Colorado College, host Omaha on Aug. 31 for its home opener.<
