PROVO — Coming off a thrilling, last-gasp victory over Auburn Thursday night, BYU returns to South Field to face Marquette Saturday in the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16. Kick off is set for 5 p.m. MST and will be broadcast live on BYUtv.
This is BYU's first trip to the Sweet 16 since 2003, but the top-seeded Cougars will have their work cut out against No. 4 seed Marquette. The Golden Eagles defeated Princeton 3-1 in the second round to advance to face BYU.
"Marquette is a fantastic team that has had a lot of success," said BYU coach Jennifer Rockwood. "They have a great team. They're well-coached. And they have great athletes."
Marquette earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament after winning the Big East conference title for the first time in school history. The Golden Eagles have outscored their opponents 59-13 on the year and are led by Taylor Madigan, who has nine goals.
Saturday's winner will advance to the Elite 8 and take on the winner of No. 2 North Carolina and No. 3 Baylor.
