Wyoming fell to 4-7-1 overall and 1-1 in Mountain West play after falling to Boise State, 2-1, on Friday in Boise. Sara Paul scored the Cowgirls only goal in the second half after the Broncos had already jumped out to a 2-0 lead.
The Cowgirls hold a slight 3-2-2 series advantage over the Aggies. Last season, the teams battled to a 1-1 double overtime tie in Logan.
