|WCC TEAMS CONTINUE NON-CONFERENCE PLAY|
|WCC men's soccer teams continue non-conference action this weekend. The WCC has played arguably the most challenging non-conference slate as the conference teams have faced 12 ranked opponents in 25 combined matches with six of the seven league schools facing at least one ranked foe. This week, Santa Clara hosts No. 5 Cal, while San Diego takes on No. 15 Indiana at UCLA.

|AROUND THE WCC|
The Portland Pilots return home this week to host Northwest rival Washington on Friday night in a game that will be televised live nationally on Fox Soccer Channel. The Pilots and Huskies are set to play at 8:00 p.m. at Merlo Field. The Pilots and Huskies have a long history with each other, meeting at least once during every single season of the UP men's soccer program's (est. 1977) existence. UW holds a 24-15-3 advantage over the Pilots, including a 1-0 win during the first round of the NCAA playoffs last season in Seattle. UP has won three straight over UW in Portland, while the Huskies hold a slim 12-11-1 all-time advantage in the Rose City.
