COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO — Baylor soccer’s time on the road comes to an end this weekend as the Bears face off against Wyoming and Colorado on Friday and Sunday, respectively.
After recording the 1-0 win in overtime at Drake and battling to a 1-1 draw in double overtime at Nebraska over the weekend, Baylor spent the past couple of days getting used to the altitude. In the mornings, the Bears trained at the Air Force Academy and spent their afternoons hiking.
Baylor (2-0-1), Wyoming (1-0-2) and Colorado (4-0-0) are all unbeaten on the season. The Cowgirls currently hold the nation’s longest non-conference home unbeaten streak among DI programs as their last loss at home against a non-conference foe came on Sept. 22, 2013 to Idaho State in double overtime. The Cowgirls are 13-0-3 during the streak.
While Friday will mark only the second contest against Wyoming for the Bears, Colorado is a more familiar opponent. The old Big 12 foes have faced off 15 times against each other, however they haven’t battled on the pitch since BU won 1-0 in double overtime on Oct. 3, 2010.
Friday’s contest will be aired on the Mountain West Digital Network, while Sunday’s match can be found on the Pac 12 Network.

BAYLOR QUICK NOTES
- BU head coach Paul Jobson has 78 career wins. He is now tied atop the record book alongside his wife, Marci (78, 2008-14).
- Camryn Wendlandt has recorded a point in three straight matches. She is one game shy of tying her career best. Wendlandt scored the first goal of the season vs. Northwestern State, made the golden goal in overtime at Drake and finished with an assist in the draw at Nebraska.
- Baylor has won 15-straight matches at home, dating back to Nov. 10, 2017. It is the longest home win streak in the nation.
- Baylor moved to 16-6-1 all-time in season openers with the win over Northwestern State on Aug. 25. Under the Jobsons, BU is 9-2-1 in season openers.
- Six Bears made their Baylor debuts in the season opener vs. Northwestern State - junior transfer Eva Mitchell, along with freshmen Tara Sumer, Elizabeth Kooiman, Maya Bellomo, Marissa Gray and Michaela Gorman.
- Baylor scored four goals in the win over the Lady Demons, which marked the most goals scored by the Bears since they scored six vs. Nebraska on Sept. 2, 2018.
- Baylor was selected second in the Big 12 Soccer Preseason Poll, the highest preseason ranking in program history. WVU took the top spot by a slim margin of three points.
- BU landed at No. 14 in the United Soccer Coaches Preseason Poll. It marked the fourth time in program history (1999, 2013, 2018, 2019) that the Bears received a spot in the rankings. Baylor will face four opponents in the preseason poll (5 USC, 11 West Virginia, 19 Texas, 22 Texas Tech.)
- Sophomore defender Kayley Ables was the lone Bear to be named to the Preseason All-Big 12 team. Ables recorded the most minutes of any BU freshman with 2,017 as she started every match she played. The Waco native was one of four 2018 Big 12 All-Freshman Team honorees to be voted on the preseason list.
- Jennifer Wandt returns for her junior campaign after a stellar sophomore season. The goalkeeper recorded 12 solo shutouts a year ago, good for second in the Big 12 and fourth in the nation. She now sits at No. 2 on Baylor’s career shutouts list (21) and has already set the program record for most in a single season.
- Camryn Wendlandt looks to build off a junior season that saw her become the first Bear to reach double-digit goals (10) since 2012.
- Baylor returns 15 letterwinners, including eight starters, from last year’s Big 12 regular season championship team.
