ARIZONA STATE (4-2-3): With two ties in the last two weeks, the Sun Devils keep their five game unbeaten streak alive. Although playing Michigan to a 1-1 tie, ASU dominated the stats offensively, leading the match in shots (20-5) and corner kicks (11-2).
CALIFORNIA (5-3-0): The Golden Bears went 0-2 last weekend in the state of Texas, facing their first ranked opponents this season. Although falling to Texas A&M, 0-1, Cal was able to hold the Aggies, who came into the contest averaging almost four goals a game, to just one score.
OREGON (5-2-1): SO F Jen Stoltenberg, who leads the Conference in points per game added to her total this weekend notching two goals last weekend in the Ducks 3-0 win over Portland State. Stoltenberg averages 1.88 points per game, ranking her 28th in the nation.
OREGON STATE (5-3-0): The Beavers traveled to New Hampshire last weekend where they went 1-1 against New Hampshire and Dartmouth, respectively. After remaining scoreless for the first two periods, Dartmouth narrowly edged out OSU with a goal in the sixth minute of overtime. The game marks the sixth consecutive one-game decision for the Beavers.
STANFORD (8-0-1): Stanford has outscored its opponents 28-3 so far this season and has earned six shutouts. SO GK Kira Maker, who has only had to make 12 saves in nine games, is ranked eighth in the nation, posting a .325 goals against average.

USC (7-1-0): JR F Marihelen Tomer scored USCs fastest goal of the season, taking a cross from SR F Amy Rodriguez and putting it away at 3:36, in the Women of Troys 4-0 win over SMU.

WASHINGTON (7-1-0): After going 1-1 on the road against strong opponents, the Huskies enter the Soccer Buzz rankings for the first time this season, coming in at No. 21.
