This Week in the Big West - October 11-17, 2010

10/11/2010


Big matches are scheduled this week in all of the fall sports, especially in men's soccer, with one of the most high-profile rivalry games in the nation as well as a nationally-televised match.  Women's soccer has just three weeks left in the regular season, and the current league-leaders will meet for their only meeting of the year.  Women's volleyball will see a big rivalry match for the second week in a row, and three of the top four teams in the conference will face tests on the road.

Men's Soccer

The Central Coast will be the focus for men's soccer this week, with three prominent matches scheduled.  Things begin with one of the biggest match-ups of the year in men's soccer, a Blue-Green Rivalry contest between UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly on Tuesday night.  The bitter rivalry between the schools is sure to draw a big crowd and ensures a hard-fought contest.

In their second match of the week, UC Santa Barbara will host Duke in the Fox Soccer Channel National Game of the Week on Friday.  This will be the first of two broadcasts featuring the Big West this season, with the other set for October 27 when Cal Poly meets UC Santa Barbara again at Alex G. Spanos Stadium.  Speaking of the Mustangs, they'll take on nationally-ranked & streaking UC Irvine Saturday at home.  The teams meet exactly one week after a 2-1 UCI victory in Irvine.

Other contests this week include home matches at Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Northridge, UC Davis, and UC Riverside.  The Cal State Fullerton match Saturday will be broadcast live on BigWest.TV.  This is the third year in a row select Cal State Fullerton contests have been aired on BigWest.TV by the Titans.

The top two teams in the league meet for the only time this season on Friday when nationally-ranked UC Irvine hosts Cal State Northridge.  The 'Eaters are on a nine-match win streak and are unbeaten in their last twelve contests.  Meanwhile, Cal State Northridge lost a close decision at UC Santa Barbara before netting their first win at Cal Poly in program history.  The Matadors have won four of their last five.

The Central Coast schools will host another set of games this weekend as UC Santa Barbara welcomes UC Davis and Pacific while Cal Poly faces off against the Tigers and Seattle University.  Cal State Fullerton also hosts a pair of matches, the first against UC Riverside Thursday .  On Sunday, the Titans will meet rival Long Beach State in a match to be televised on BigWest.TV.

Women's Volleyball

Three weeks into the conference slate, things remain tight with six teams above .500 in conference play and just a game separating first through fifth place.  Things start off Thursday with league-leading Cal State Fullerton hosting Cal State Northridge.  Friday sees Central Coast teams UC Santa Barbara and Cal Poly heading north to face Pacific and UC Davis.  UC Santa Barbara is tied with Cal State Fullerton for the Big West lead, while Cal Poly and UC Davis sit a half-game behind the Gauchos and Mustangs.  UC Irvine and Long Beach State will also meet on Friday in a Black and Blue Rivalry Series match at the Walter Pyramid.

On Saturday, the Central Coast and Northern California teams swap opponents, while Long Beach State heads to UC Riverside and UC Irvine squares off against the Matadors at Cal State Northridge.  A rare Sunday afternoon match-up will feature Cal State Fullerton visiting UC Riverside to close out the week.

For the fifth year in a row, all home and conference matches be broadcast by Big West institutions live on the conference's Internet-streaming initiative BigWest.TV.
