The Pac-12 title race is down to three and two.
There are three teams left in contention from the crown of the premier conference west of the Mississippi and only two weeks to settle the top spot.
The Cardinal held serve over the weekend with home wins over Washington State (9-6-1) and #40 Washington (9-6-2). The Cougars made things interesting on Friday holding Stanford to 2-2 at half. However, Mariah Nogueira’s seventh goal of the season, and third game-winner of the campaign, in the second half was enough for the Cardinal to keep a perfect record in conference play.
The new #2 team in the nation, UCLA assumed the title as the final undefeated team in Division I after Florida State’s 3-2 loss to Boston College on Friday. The Bruins took care of work over the weekend with wins over Colorado and Utah.
Aztecs are Best
San Diego State captured the Mountain West Conference regular season crown on Sunday with a 3-0 win over Air Force. It was the first league title for the Aztecs in the MWC, which previously won the MWC tournament in 2009.
"I couldn't be happier for the whole group to accomplish the first of our many goals, which is to win the Mountain West regular season championship," head coach Mike Friesen said in a release. "We have several more to go. We want to go undefeated in the Mountain West, we want to win the Mountain West Tournament and we want to go as far as we can in the NCAA Tournament."
The #13 Aztecs close out the regular season with a home game against New Mexico on Friday.
Cougars Charge on in heated WCC
After a convincing 4-1 win over Gonzaga, BYU (14-1-1) moved up two spots to #6 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com Tournament 64 this week. Junior midfielder Cloee Colohan had a goal and an assist in the victory.
Next up for the squad from Utah is a trip to Southern California for a game against San Diego on Thursday.
Aggies tie program record
The #12 Aggies of Texas A&M matched the program record for shutouts in a season on Sunday in a 1-0 double overtime victory over Georgia. The Aggies day was not defined by defense though.
The SEC Western Division Champions took 33 shots in the game, but only managed to sneak one past Georgia goalkeeper Ashley Baker, who recorded 11 saves on the day.
The Aggies close out the regular season with a home game against #33 Missouri on Thursday. For the Aggies to win the SEC regular season outright, Texas A&M needs a win over Missouri and Florida to lose against South Carolina.
Colorado College breaks into rankings
The Tigers of Colorado College (12-3-4) are streaking toward the finish line. The top team in the Conference USA standings has won five games in a row on its way to claiming a share of the league lead.
A win over UTEP (10-9-0) on Friday will give the Tigers their first-ever crown and the top seed in the conference tournament next week.
Down to the Wire
The Aggies (10-2-6) are 5-0-2 in conference play with a game against Louisiana Tech on Sunday to close out the regular season.
