NCAA Tournament Bracket

• Pac-12 women’s soccer teams went 7-1-1 in the first round of the NCAA Championship, and five of the seven remaining teams hit the road for their second round matchups while No. 1 seeds UCLA and STANFORD staying at home to host second and third rounds. Three squads – ARIZONA STATE, CALIFORNIA and COLORADO – head to the East Coast, while ARIZONA travels to College Station to face another No. 1 seed in Texas A&M and WASHINGTON comes to The Farm in a neutral-site contest against Missouri. 

• The seven teams are the most Pac-12 squads in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in history. Previously, the Pac-12 only had as many as six (2002, 2006, and 2009).

• A league-record nine Pac-12 women’s soccer teams earned berths to the 2014 NCAA Women’s College Cup. Two Conference teams earned top seeds, with UCLA and Stanford taking home two of the four No. 1 spots. Other teams receiving berths are No. 4-seeded WASHINGTON, ARIZONA, ARIZONA STATE, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, USC and WASHINGTON STATE.

• The nine league tournament selections were the most of any conference in the country. Following the Pac-12 was the SEC, which has eight teams, while the ACC and Big 12 will have six representatives each.

• The Pac-12 currently holds an all-time record of 157-105-22 in the NCAA Women’s College Cup, with three national championships and five second-place finishes. The league has previously had eight teams compete in the postseason once in 2009, and had seven teams compete in the postseason seven times.  For all-time postseason results in the Pac-12, see page five of this release. 

• Five teams are ranked in the top 25 of the final regular-season NSCAA polling for the sixth time this year, with seven total teams receiving votes. UCLA continues its stand at No. 1 for the 13th-straight week, while Stanford stayed at No. 3, extending its stay in the top five for the 12th-consecutive week. California slid up to No. 20, while Washington State moved up one spot to No. 23. Washington earned a top-25 ranking for the fourth time this week, weighing in at No. 24. Arizona State and USC are also receiving votes.
