COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou soccer team officially opens its 2014 season with a pair of games at the Penn State Invitational this weekend. The Tigers open the year against Syracuse on Friday, Aug. 22 at 4 p.m. CT, then play No. 12 West Virginia on Sunday, Aug. 24 at 11 a.m. CT.

Tiger Tidbits
-2014 marks Mizzou's 19th season of soccer, as the program was started in 1996. The Tigers have an all-time record of 196-158-21.
-Head Coach Bryan Blitz enters 2014 just four wins shy of 200 at Mizzou, and nine wins shy of 250 in his coaching career.
-Three Tigers were named to the SEC Coaches' Preseason Watch List earlier in the week: senior midfielder Kaysie Clark, junior defender Candace Johnson and sophomore midfielder Melanie Donaldson.
-Kaysie Clark earned All-SEC first team honors in 2013 after pacing the squad with 15 points on six goals and three assists. She enters her senior season with 35 points on 12 goals and 11 assists.
-The 2014 Tigers are a family affair, with two pairs of sisters suiting up for Mizzou. Senior Kaysie Clark is joined on the pitch by her sister, freshman Kaitlyn, while freshman Jessica Johnson joins her sister Jessica on the squad.
-In its lone exhibition game of the year, Missouri recorded 2-1 win over No. 4 North Carolina on Aug. 15. Senior Taylor Grant and sophomore Rachel Hignett scored for the Tigers.
- Redshirt freshman Jessica Herrman will make her Missouri debut this season, two years after joining the Tigers. Herrman suffered season-ending injuries in 2012 and 2013 that kept her off the field, but the Raytown, Mo., native will finally suit up for Mizzou in 2014.
