The Pacific-10 Conference enjoyed a successful campaign in 2001, as four teams advanced to the NCAA Tournament in just the second season the league has sponsored men's soccer. Both STANFORD and UCLA reached the third round, with the Cardinal advancing to the NCAA Semifinals.

STANFORD captured its first Pac-10 title and made just its second appearance in the College Cup, soccer's version of the Final Four. The No. 3-seed Cardinal fell to seventh-seeded North Carolina, 3-2 in four overtimes. Stanford concluded the season at 19-2-1, its best overall record in program history. First-year Cardinal head coach Bret Simon, the 2001 Pac-10 Coach of the Year, became the first coach to lead two different schools to the College Cup in consecutive years. He guided Creighton to the finals in 2000.

Stanford's Roger Levesque earned Pac-10 Player of the Year honors, while WASHINGTON's C.J. Klaas was named Freshman of the Year.
