ABOUT WYOMING: The Cowgirls (7-5-4, 3-4-1 MW) are led by Shaina Ashouri's 21 points on eight goals and five assists. Wyoming goalkeepers Cassidy Entsminger and Georgia Rowntree boast a combined 0.82 goals-against average, while sharing minutes almost equally all season.
All-Time Series: Wyoming leads 6-3-1. The Cowgirls won in Boise last season, 1-0 in double overtime. It snapped a three-match winning streak for Boise State in the series.
ABOUT COLORADO STATE: The Rams (3-12-2, 0-7-1), in their third year of existence, are riding a seven-match losing streak after earning a draw in the first conference game of the season. Freshman Hannah Gerdin leads the way with 11 points on five goals and an assist.

SHE'S ON FIRE: Senior Brooke Heidemann has scored six goals in the last six matches and leads the team with 17 points on the year. Heidemann scored in four consecutive matches (Oct. 2-11) to tie the Boise State record. It was the fifth time a Bronco has scored in four consecutive games and the first since Erica Parks in 2009. The three-time All-Mountain West First Team honoree has scored or assisted in six of eight conference matches.
NO MOMENT TOO BIG: Senior Brooke Heidemann has made a career of stepping up when the Broncos need her most. Heidemann has 23 goals in her career, including a school-record-tying nine game winners. The most recent came in the final home game of her career, Sunday against Air Force. In the 71st minute she ripped home a shot from just inside the box. Heidemann has scored the game-winning goal in each of Boise State's last three victories.
ANDERSON'S TIME TO SHINE: Senior goalkeeper Bailey Anderson made her first appearance of the year when she was put in the starting lineup on Senior Day against Air Force (Oct. 18). Anderson, who had not played since suffering a season-ending injury in August 2014, made three saves and claimed numerous crosses on Falcon set pieces to earn the win. It was the third start and fifth appearance of Anderson's career, which she will cut short at the end of the season when she earns a degree in psychology after just three years.
MULTITASKING: Senior Brooke Heidemann had a goal and assist against UNLV (Oct. 9) and two goals at Nevada (Oct. 11). Each game marked the second such performance of Heidemann's career.
HISTORY ON THE HORIZON: Senior Brooke Heidemann is looking to become just the third student-athlete in Mountain West history to be named first-team all-league four times in women's soccer. Heidemann looks to join Amanda Feigt (Utah, 2003-06) and Katie Larkin (BYU, 2005-08). Through eight conference matches, Heidemann is second in the league with 14 points on six goals and two assists. Her six goals are also second in the conference. She has scored or assisted in six of the team's eight MW games. The 14 points and six goals are the most Heidemann has tallied in conference play during her illustrious career.
