Conference USA women’s soccer opens the weekend on the national stage as league-leader Memphis hosts Rice for the NSCAA Game of the Week on Fox Soccer Channel. Game time is 7 p.m. CDT Thursday from the Mike Rose Soccer Complex. Memphis and Rice have met six times and every meeting has gone wire-to-wire with one-goal margins and one draw. Memphis is coming off its first C-USA loss in 742 days with the 4-1 loss at UTEP. In that span, the Tigers were 25-0-4 against league opponents. Rice is currently just two points behind them in the C-USA standings, tied for second place with East Carolina.
