This Week In Pac-10 Men's Soccer
CALIFORNIA and UCLA continue postseason play, advancing to the quarterfinals of the 2010 Division I Men's Soccer Championship. This marks the first time since 2002 that two Pac-10 teams will appear in the quarterfinals. UCLA and Stanford met in the championship game that year, with the Bruins claiming their fourth national title with a 1-0 victory.
After hosting second and third round games, both teams head east to face tough competition on Saturday, Dec. 4.
The sixth-seed Golden Bears are off to Ohio to face Akron at Lee R. Jackson Field. The No. 3 seed Zips (20-1-1) defeated 14th-seed Indiana, 2-1, in the third round. Akron topped the NSCAA national rankings through Oct. 26. This will be the first meeting between the two schools. Cal's best finish was the quarterfinal round in 2005.
Eighth-seed UCLA will take on top-seeded and undefeated Louisville at Cardinal Park Stadium. The Cardinals (18-0-3) advanced to the quarterfinal with a 2-1 win over Ohio State. The Bruins are looking to make their 13th College Cup and first since 2006.
