SAN BRUNO, Calif. --The 2011 West Coast Conference regular season concludes this week, with the title still up for grabs. On Friday, No. 8 Pepperdine looks to keep its title hopes alive when the Waves host San Francisco. Later that evening, No. 7 Santa Clara and San Diego collide (6 p.m., ESPNU). A Broncos victory gives SCU its first WCC crown since 2006.

WCC QUICK HITS

  • Santa Clara and San Diego meet in a nationally-televised match Friday night (ESPNU). A Broncos victory gives SCU its first WCC title since 2006. San Diego can claim its first WCC crown with a win over the Broncos. Pepperdine can still win the title outright with a victory over USF Friday, coupled with a tie between the Broncos and Toreros.

  • Santa Clara senior Bridgett Miller became the first player to earn back-to-back WCC Player of the Week accolades on Monday.

  • Santa Clara climbed into first place atop the WCC standings after a 1-0 win over previously-unbeaten Pepperdine. The Broncos are unbeaten in their last 11 matches.

  • Since opening the 2011 West Coast Conference season with a loss at Pepperdine, San Diego has been the WCC's hottest team. The Toreros have reeled off six consecutive victories.

  • BYU senior GK McKinzie Olson made seven more saves in two matches last week, upping her career total to 274 -- the most in BYU soccer history.

  • Portland sophomore forward Micaela Capelle scored in five of seven Pilots matches in October, registering 13 points during the month.

  • Santa Clara freshman Sofia Huerta scored 8 goals and tallied 19 points during a phenomenal October in which her team went 7-0-1.
