Men's Soccer

For the ninth consecutive season and first time as Big West Tournament champion, UC Santa Barbara is headed to the NCAA Tournament. The Gauchos’ 2010 NCAA run begins at home on Thursday against MPSF Mountain Division champion Denver at 7 pm.

Denver (9-6-4, 6-2-2 MPSF Mountain) is in the postseason as an at-large selection after falling in the the MPSF Tournament semifinals to eventual champion Sacramento State. The Pioneers were also the overall MPSF regular season champion. DU played one match against a Big West school this season, a 1-0 loss to Cal Poly in both teams’ season-opener. This is the second postseason appearance in three seasons for Denver, with the previous showing also coming against a Big West school in UC Davis. DU fell 4-0 in that match in 2008.

Women's Soccer

UC Irvine made their first-ever NCAA Tournament last weekend and promptly made more history by winning their first two matches over Arizona State and Wake Forest to advance to the Round of 16.  The 'Eaters will host Washington on Saturday, November 20 at 6:00 p.m. PT.

Women's Volleyball

As we enter the final week of conference play, one match separates first place Cal State Fullerton (12-2) and second place Long Beach State (11-3). Both teams close out Big West action facing Cal State Northridge and UC Irvine, who combine for a 7-20 Big West record.

The Titans are in the driver's seat with a one-match advantage. Cal State Fullerton, riding a seven-match win streak, must win one of their final two contests to secure at least a share of the 2010 Big West championship, the first in school history. If the Titans are able to tally a pair of wins this weekend, they will garner sole-possession of the league title.

If Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton conclude the year knotted for first place, the 49ers would receive the conference's automatic qualifier to the NCAA Tournament due to a head-to-head tiebreaker. Long Beach State swept the series versus the Titans this year.

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.
