The Aggies come into Friday's game with a record of 5-1-2, with their only loss coming to in-state rival New Mexico. Crystal Burns, a junior forward is coming off a week that had her named WAC Offensive Player of the Week, scoring four goals and notching three assists in two games.

Northern Colorado vs Boise State
The Bears and the Broncos just recently have begun to heat up a rivalry, meeting for the third-straight year. The most recent battle ended in a tough 0-0 tie in Boise. Previous to that, Boise State had won the first two games of the series. 

Coming into the weekend, the Broncos own a 3-5-1 record. In their most recent match, the Broncos lost 1-0 to New Mexico in a hard-fought battle.
