The player of the week is Jordan Nytes, a sophomore goalkeeper who helped Colorado to a clean sheet upset of #16 Michigan State amid seven saves, zero conceded, and two wins on the week. It was the kind of performance validating why she was the Big 12 Co-Goalkeeper of the Year as a freshman before transferring ahead of the 2023 season.
