    Sort of. Nobody can match Stanford’s depth. In order to beat them you have to have skill everywhere, lots of heart, and make them an outside shooting team.

    Pretty tall order if you asked me.

    LMU is 2-5. Pepp is 2-5. Florida is 2-5...who would have thought! A blowout win is in store here. Players in and out is a challenge. I do feel like they can make a run but there are some challenges in Westwood this season. Rooting for the PAC though.

    Every team gives UCLA their best game due to the 4 letters on the jersey. They will make a run you can count on it and come September 27th the country will be shocked. The only challenge in Westwood is not overlooking everyone other than Stanford, Cal and the Evil Empire.

    With Fleming and Mace this team doesn’t lose and next year after Stanford’s 2015 class graduates UCLA only will lose only 2 starters and their replacements are killing it for the U17 YNT right now.

    Please keep that record pristine for November 2nd. I saw that commercial that $C is running on the PAC 12 network advertising the game and Keidane saying LA is their town is all that the ladies needed to hear/see.

    I’m surprised Pepp is still receiving points.

    Who let the Federation of University Sport of China play here? Just watched a re-run of a game against a Pac12 team. So bad. When I say watched, I stopped watching several times, only to check back in for scores.

    I disagree. The match of the season will happen Sunday when Stanford takes on Santa Clara. UCLA and USC are secondary at this point. I can’t wait for this one

    We’re all about the underdog but Santa Clara may not have the legs to hang with them based on this.

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas – In a matchup of top-10 teams, No. 9 Santa Clara women's soccer fell at No. 8 Texas A&M 4-0 Sunday evening on the road.

    After a scoreless first half, the Aggies (6-0) offense came alive and scored a goal in the 48th minute to take the lead before scoring three more in the span of four minutes midway through the period.

    Hate to break the news to you but Stanford is going to steamroll Santa Clara. 3-0 or 3-1 will be the score. Santa Clara is a good team but North Carolina dominated them and aren’t on the same level as Stanford. I wouldn’t consider UCLA and $C secondary. I will guarantee that Stanford has those games circled.

    I'm sure it has to do with strength of schedule and our finish last year. Everyone we lost to was "good" according to the Coaches Poll, RPI.

    Domination. Does that mean more shots? More possession? 2 years ago Stanford dominated but lost to Santa Clara.

    Pepperdine will have to win the WCC to make the dance and that will include beating both BYU and SC, who are both very good this year.

    Yes, that's the word on the street :)

    One could argue that a conference title is still possible without beating both of those teams (two and three way ties have happened!) but you never know!

    The stats say Santa Clara was fortunate to win and most people including myself that saw the game thinks that North Carolina controlled the game but couldn’t finish. You know that soccer is a sport where many times the better team doesn’t win.

    MAP--going on record here after seeing them live today: UCLA can't touch USC this year. I can't wait until November 2nd!

    Watched that game late last night. USC put the ball in the back of the net 6 times. UCLA got one in with 2 seconds left on the clock. I’d have to agree with you

    LOL! Your forwards are overrated and you only have one good midfielder. Keep feeling yourselves. You might not even best UDub or Cal! You might want to check LP’s stats from last year...

    I’m actually glad that you guys think that way. November 2nd is really gonna hurt.
