LOGAN, Utah - Utah State soccer returns to its true home Chuck and Glorida Bell Soccer Field on Sunday, Aug. 19 for its home opener against UTEP at 12 p.m.
On Friday, the Aggies captured their first win of the season in dramatic style with a 1-0 overtime victory against Utah at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah. Rio Tinto Stadium has become USU's home away from home as the Aggies are 4-0 at the home of Major League Soccer's Real Salt Lake.
UTEP holds a 2-1 series lead over the Aggies. The last time Utah State faced the Miners was in 2008 in Logan. In that game, USU edged out UTEP 2-1 behind goals from Lauren Hansen and Erin Salmon who scored the game-winner. Current Aggie assistant coach Alyssa Lowry played all 90 minutes in that game in the USU backline.
In their season opener, the Miners won a tightly contested match with Utah Valley in Orem, Utah on Friday. UTEP scored with less than two minutes remaining in the match to earn the 2-1 win and begin the season 1-0.

While the press box will remain on the west side, the team benches will now be on the east side of the field which is a change from previous seasons.
