RS-SR MF Hector Jimenez remains the Conference leader in assists per game (0.53).

SO F Danny Mwanga ranks 11th in the NCAA goals per game (0.69) and third in the Conference in points (18). OSU is 5-2 at home this season, winning its last two matches in Corvallis. 

    SAN DIEGO STATE (6-4-4, 3-2-2)
    After picking up a pair of crucial Pac-10 road victories last weekend, the Aztecs jumped from sixth to second in the Conference standings. JR F Raymundo Reza earned is second-career Pac-10 Player of the Week selection after scoring two goals in the Aztecs 2-0 win at then-No. 20 California last weekend.

    STANFORD (9-4-1, 3-3-1)
    The Cardinal extended its streak of holding opponents to two goals or less to 32 matches. SR GK John Moore played an intergal part in Stanford’s 2-0 upset of then-No. 2 UCLA on Sunday, making a career-high nine saves. He recorded his sixth shut out of the season and 15th of his career. His goals against average is 0.90, which ranks third in the Pac-10.

    UCLA (9-2-2, 4-1-2)
    The Bruins look to rebound from their 2-0 loss to Stanford last weekend as they step outside Conference play and travel to Creighton. UCLA is on a four-match non-conference winning streak. UCLA leads the Pac-10 in scoring offense (1.77), teams goals against average (0.74), shutout percentage (0.46) and save percentage (0.839).
