This Week in Pac-12 Women's Soccer
STANFORD (6-0-1) takes over the NSCAA poll as the top team in the nation after a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over defending champions Notre Dame. Bank of the West Pac-12 Women's Soccer Player of the Week Lindsay Taylor anchored the effort with the game-tying goal and an assist for the winning goal.
UCLA (6-0-1) and CALIFORNIA (6-1-0) also represent the Pac-12 in the rankings: The Bruins jumped two spots from last week to No. 4 in the NSCAA poll, while the Golden Bears make their first appearance in the poll this season at No. 22. OREGON STATE (4-2-1) and WASHINGTON STATE (4-2-1) also received votes.
The No. 1 Cardinal play under the spotlight Thursday at 7 p.m. PT when they face Portland on the road on the Fox Soccer Channel. This weekend marks the final week of non-conference play.
