Last week's league action was capped by the second showdown featuring the top-two teams in the nation ... CALIFORNIA is hosting No. 5 WASHINGTON on Wednesday, Nov. 7 on ESPNU. The Golden Bears are looking to build on a two-match win streak which includes an upset of the then-second ranked team in the nation, while the Huskies also bounced back to win a pair of matches last weekend after suffering a pair of losses ... The Conference continues to have five teams ranked in the top 10 of the AVCA National Coaches poll, led by No. 1 STANFORD. The Cardinal occupy the top spot in the poll for the second week in a row. OREGON is ranked No. 4, followed by the fifth-ranked Huskies, No. 6 UCLA and No. 8 USC ... In the NCAA stats, five Pac-12 teams are ranked in the top 25 in hitting percentage and blocks per set ... Stanford's Carly Wopat was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, Cal's Kat Brown was the Defensive Player of the Week and the Cardinal's Brittany Howard was selected the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week.
