Pac-12 women's soccer looks for strong non-Conference ending

• After an upset by unranked USC over then-No. 8 North Carolina (3-0), the Pac-12 looks to finish out the last week of non-Conference play on a high note.

• The Conference ended a successful heavy week 14-5-3 with the star-studded goalies leading the charge. CALIFORNIA’s Emily Boyd appears as the top-ranked goalie in the NCAA in shutouts for the second week in a row (6) with ARIZONA’s Lainey Burdett and USC’s Sammy Jo Prudhomme tied for 12th (4). Burdett is also first in goals against average (0.000) and save percentage (1.000).

• The Pac-12 Conference has continually had three or more teams in the NSCAA top-25 with STANFORD having a strong presence at first or second each week this season. Pac-12 teams continue to reign victorious over ranked opponents, proving their worth, including multiple five major top-25 upsets and notable wins over the past four weeks. 

• Stanford, OREGON, and California sit atop the Conference standings with six wins overall after last weekend’s matches. Stanford holds firmly to the number one spot with only one tie to supplement its six wins. Oregon and California both suffered losses last weekend to end their winning streaks.

• NSCAA rankings feature four Pac-12 teams this week with Stanford at the helm (No. 1). While UCLA is No. 11, USC is No. 12, and California is No .21. WASHINGTON and Arizona also received votes.

• Six games appear on the Pac-12 Network this week: San Francisco at No. 21 California, Kansas at USC, Cal State Fullerton at ARIZONA STATE, Santa Clara at No. 1 Stanford, Oklahoma at Arizona, and Boise State at WASHINGTON STATE.

• Stanford’s Megan Turner is the Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week. USC’s Ally Prisock is the Defensive Player of the Week and her teammate Sammy Jo Prudhomme was tabbed the Goalkeeper of the Week. Prudhomme’s honor is her second in a row.

• features four Pac-12 schools in the top-25 with Stanford coming in No. 2. USC follows at No. 10, UCLA is No. 12, California is No. 21, and Arizona is No. 23. Washington also received votes.

• The reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year, Arielle Ship, returns for the Golden Bears this season, as well as USC's Kayla Mills, the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and Stanford's Jane Campbell, the Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year. Six members of the All-Pac-12 first team and eight members of the All-Pac-12 second team are returning for the coming season.

• Twenty-­eight players from NCAA Division I schools around the country have been marked as potential contenders for the 2016 Missouri Athletic Club’s (MAC) Hermann Trophy. The MAC Hermann Trophy is the most prestigious individual award in college soccer, presented annually to one male and one female athlete. The Pac-­12 has five representatives on the list: Stanford’s senior Jane Campbell and junior Andi Sullivan, USC’s seniors Kayla Mills and Morgan Andres, along with California’s senior Arielle Ship.

• The countdown of Pac­12 Networks’ 850 live event telecasts begin on the pitch with a 68­-game women’s soccer schedule. Each Pac­-12 team appears on the Network at least six times (home or away) in 2016.
