Baylor will get two more chances to fine tune its gameplan ahead of next week’s start to Big 12 play, hosting No. 23 Butler (6-1-0) and UT Rio Grande Valley (4-2-1) in a Thursday-Sunday weekend split at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.
For Baylor, the two matches stand as the final regular season nonconference matches before kicking off the Big 12 schedule with Texas on Friday, Sep. 21, in Austin.
Thursday’s match with Butler is this season’s Salute to Heroes match, honoring first responders, military members and their families. Discounted tickets are available for those heroes and their families and the first 500 fans will receive a special edition color changing cup.
Sunday’s match with UTRGV is the first Hispanic Heritage match, promoted in partnership with Baylor’s Department of Multicultural Affairs and the Student-Athlete Center for Excellence. There will be a pregame tailgate with free tacos and churros from a local food truck, and an online promo code for discounted tickets for the general public.
For the first time in program history, all home matches will offer a free live video stream on Facebook.com/BaylorFutbol.
Baylor soccer has also entered year two of a partnership with La Mejor (106.1 FM) to offer a Spanish radio broadcast of all the games at Betty Lou Mays this season.
