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.
