A Look Ahead
The beginning of Pac-12 men's soccer play, three football teams receving votes in the Associated Press top 25, volleyball showdowns in Seattle and a jam-packed Friday highlight the rest of the week on the Pac-12 Networks.
It begins this evening when No. 5 Washington hosts No. 4 UCLA in women's volleyball at 7 p.m. Then on Friday, there will be a staggering 10 games on the networks -- four women's volleyball matches, four women's soccer matches, the men's soccer conference opener between UCLA and Stanford and a field hockey contest featuring Stanford and Cal.
The field hockey game and a women's soccer showdown between Washington State and Utah kick off the day's festivities at 12 p.m. PT. Then at 2 p.m., there are three more women's soccer games -- Oregon at Cal, USC at Arizona State and Washington at Colorado. The men's soccer tilt takes place at 4 p.m.
Friday's onslaught finishes up with the volleyball matches in the evening, highlighted by No. 3 USC visiting No. 5 Washington at 6 p.m. Cal also visits Arizona State and Oregon State hosts Colorado at the same time. Utah visits Oregon at 8 p.m. to cap off the eventful day.
Newly ranked Oregon State (No. 19) highlights a doubleheader of football on Saturday. The Beavers pay a visit to Arizona, which fell out of the national rankings this week but still collected 17 votes in the AP poll to come in at No. 31 nationally. The game begins at 7 p.m. Earlier in the day at 3 p.m., UCLA visits Colorado. The Bruins received 79 votes this week to rank No. 27 in the nation. Colorado, meanwhile, is coming off its thrilling road comeback win over Washington State.
On Sunday, there are four more women's volleyball matches, three more women's soccer broadcasts and a pair of men's soccer games.
