OREM, Utah --
A seven-game non-conference homestand highlights the 2014 Utah Valley University women's soccer schedule, announced Tuesday by head coach Brent Anderson. The schedule includes 10 non-conference and 10 Western Athletic Conference matches.

The Wolverines open at Portland State on Friday, Aug. 22 and will also face Drake in a neutral site game in Portland two days later. Following those two matches, Utah Valley will open the seven-game homestand against Big 12 Baylor on Friday, Aug. 29.

"We are fortunate to have a very strong schedule set for this Fall," Anderson said. "The level of the competition we will face is excellent and we are excited to be hosting some great teams here at UVU."

Following the game against Baylor, the Wolverines will host Boise State, Wyoming, Southern Utah, UTEP, UNLV and UC Riverside, in order, before closing the non-league slate at Utah on Sept. 21. The match against UTEP, on Friday, Sept. 12, will also be Homecoming and feature one of three doubleheaders with the new UVU men's soccer team.

The WAC schedule begins at defending champion Seattle U on Sunday, Sept. 28 and is the first of three straight on the road to begin conference action. The WAC home opener is Friday, Oct. 10 vs. Bakersfield with Grand Canyon coming into Orem two days later.

Seattle U, Bakersfield and Grand Canyon are each on the schedule twice, with Texas-Pan American, New Mexico State, Kansas City and Chicago State facing the Wolverines one time. Both UTPA and CSU are entering their first seasons of women's soccer.

The home finale will be Saturday, Nov. 1 against Seattle U with the WAC Tournament taking place Nov. 6-9 in Seattle.
