Women’s soccer announces schedule for upcoming season

The SMU women’s soccer team announced its fall schedule Thursday afternoon in a press release on smumustangs.com. The team’s schedule consists of the regular conference rivals, as well as collaboration of several nationally-ranked teams from both ends of the country.

The women will open their season on Aug. 23 against Big 12 member Oklahoma State at the Mustangs’ own Westcott Field. Following the OSU game, the Mustangs will host Southeastern Conference members Ole Miss and Kansas on Aug. 31 and Sept. 7, respectively.

In a press release on smumustangs.com, head coach Brent Erwin said, “This is going to be a very competitive schedule for us, and provide a lot of entertaining games for our fans.”

After a four-game at-home opening, the Mustangs will travel to the homes of two NCAA contenders from the 2007 season, Notre Dame and Southern California. Conference USA play will kick off with a pair of home games against Colorado College and the University of Texas-El Paso.

Following the UTEP game at Westcott Field, SMU will travel on the road again for four consecutive C-USA games. The Mustangs will wrap up their season with three of their five remaining games at home, where they will host Memphis, the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Southern Miss. SMU’s last game of the season will be on the road against Tulsa.

“In addition to the rivalries we’re building against Conference USA teams, we also have a very challenging non-conference schedule that will allow us to measure ourselves against some of the best teams in the country,” said Erwin.

After sweeping Oklahoma in a 1-0 match in April and an 0-0 shutout over Baylor in the spring season, the team feels confident heading into the fall.

“We have a lot of talented players who are going to play for us next year, and playing teams like we have on our schedule will help us assess their development as player,” said Erwin.
