New, 29 comments

Bears will take on the top ranked team in the country (and defending NCAA champ) down at Westwood this evening. Can the Bears pull off a huge upset? Cal Men's Soccer was able to beat No.2 UCLA on Friday and, of course, there is that other big UCLA-Cal matchup at Memorial on Saturday, not to mention the UCLA-Cal men's water polo match also on Saturday.

No.22 Cal Bears are poised to pull off a big upset tonight at No.1 UCLA.

In part 3 of 5 Cal-UCLA showdown in the span of a week, Cal Women's Soccer will attempt to beat No.1 and the defending NCAA Champions UCLA down at Westwood tonight. The Cal Men's Soccer were able to beat then No.2 UCLA on Friday afternoon in Berkeley by a 3-2 OT score. UCLA got the better of Cal Rugby, however, in the weekend Rugby 7s tournament hosted by Cal Poly. The women's soccer match is tonight, follow by both the men's water polo and football games on Saturday.

UCLA are currently at the top of the Pac-12 Women's Soccer table, after a 2-1 come from behind victory over then No.3 Stanfurd (Furd is currently tied with UCLA because they have played an extra game, the Bears would love for UCLA and Furd to stay tied by the end of today).

UCLA has conceded mere 4 goals on the year so far. Their 2.15 goals scored per game means that this game may be a defensive struggle. While the Women's Soccer team is not as prolific at scoring as the Men's (who are leading the nation in goals per game), Cal Women's offer a well balanced attack that averages 2.31 goals per game.

Bears took care of business at USC on Friday, getting goals from Grace Leer and Arielle Ship.

GO BEARS!
