Women’s soccer looks to reclaim top ranking as it opens season at Penn State

The same excitement of this summer’s Women’s World Cup is present at Cagan Stadium for No. 3 Stanford women’s soccer. The Cardinal, however, are more accustomed to sitting at the top of the polls. Before the program-record 45-game win streak was snapped in the semifinals of the 2018 College Cup to eventual champion Florida State, Stanford had held the No. 1 spot since Oct. 10, 2017.

Men’s and women’s soccer claim weekend victories at home

It’s no exaggeration to say that Stanford soccer has been absolutely unstoppable, and this past weekend was no exception, as both teams played a home match in Cagan Stadium. The women’s team (10-0-1, 3-0-0 Pac-12) is unbeaten this season, and is currently ranked first in the nation. They extended a 33 game unbeaten streak with a 1-0 extra time victory against No. 2 ranked USC on Sunday (9-1-1, 2-1-0). The men’s team (5-1-3, 2-0-0), while not ranked at the moment, dominated UCLA (5-4-0, 1-1-0) right after the conclusion of the women’s match, blasting them 3-0 in regulation.
