Albuquerque, N.M.--- The University of New Mexico women's soccer team will look to get back to its winning ways as the Lobos head to Lincoln, Nebraska to take on the Iowa State Cylcones and the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Friday and Sunday in the Husker Classic.

NEW MEXICO AT A GLANCE: The Lobos head to Lincoln where they will take on Iowa State and host Nebraska in the Husker Classic on Friday and Sunday. The Lobos are coming off a 1-1 tie with TCU in the season opener, and then a 2-0 loss at Texas Tech.

IOWA STATE AT A GLANCE:  The Cyclones are 2-0-0 after defeating Creighton 1-0 in overtime on Sunday.  Emily Goldstein scored the OT winner, her second of the year.  Iowa State trounced Division II Nebraska-Omaha on Friday in its season opener 4-0.

NEBRASKA AT A GLANCE:   The Huskers are off to an 0-2-0 start, dropping a pair of one goal games.  Nebraska lost 2-1 at Oklahoma on Friday night before dropping a 1-0 decision at home to Drake.  In both games the winning goal came about 20 minutes into the second half.

COACH VELA: The Lobos are led by Coach Kit Vela, who is in her 12th year at New Mexico and carries a 93-82-39 record into the Husker Classic.

LOBOS TO WATCH:  The Lobos have been led by Liz Nare, who along with solid defending has the only goal of the season so far for New Mexico.  She headed in the tying goal against TCU with 11:20 left in the game.  UNM's backline has been solid, allowing only one goal in the run of play (two off set pieces, including a penalty kick).

ALL-TIME VS. IOWA STATE AND NEBRASKA:  New Mexico will be facing off with Iowa State for the first time in the program’s 20-year history, and the team will be battling with the Nebraska Cornhuskers for the second time in school history. The only other meeting was in game two of the 2010 season, when the Lobos knocked off Nebraska 3-0 at the UNM Soccer Complex.
