SCOUTING THE AZTECS: San Diego State was picked to finish fifth in the preseason Pac-12 poll... They have eight returning letterwinners, but have a very young squad that features 19 newcomers... Their incoming recruiting class was ranked No. 37 in the nation... USD leads the all-time series 6-12-2, and the Aztecs won the last time they played in 2013.

SEASON OUTLOOK: After a surprise run to the Elite Eight in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, the Toreros struggled with a young and inexperienced squad in 2013. The 2014 team brings back 22 players including nine returning starters. The Toreros were picked to finish third (tying Portland) in the preseason WCC poll and had two players, Connor Brandt and Torrey DeArmas, chosen to the preseason All-WCC team.

Brandt, a midfielder from Temecula, led the Toreros in goals (five), assists (six), and points (16) last season. DeArmas (Escondido, Calif.) was an All-Freshman team selection in 2012 and All-WCC second team pick in 2013, contributing nine points a season ago. Joining them will be Keegan Smith (Temecula, Calif.), a 2013 All-WCC honorable mention pick, and Julian Ringhof (Sexau, Germany), who was awarded a sixth year of eligibility after being named to the 2013 All-WCC First team.

The Toreros' 2014 schedule features six matches against 2013 NCAA Tournament participants, with four of them coming at home. After opening their home schedule against Buffalo (Aug. 29) and Cal State Fullerton (Sept. 1), the Toreros will host a trio of schools who made a postseason run a year ago; Bradley (Sept. 12), New Mexico (Sept. 14), and UCLA (Sept. 26). New Mexico and UCLA were both ranked in the top five in the NSCAA preseason poll. The Toreros will travel to face UC Irvine (Sept. 21), who advanced to the Sweet 16 last season. USD will also face reigning WCC champ LMU twice this season. First in a non-counter game at home on October 10 and then again on the road in the season finale Nov. 15.

The WCC schedule has a different look in 2014. With Pacific bringing back men's soccer for the first time in 28 years, there are now eight WCC schools with men's soccer programs. The addition of the Tigers prompted the switch to a seven match conference slate with each school playing each other once. In the past every WCC school squared off against each other twice per year.

Seamus McFadden is returning for his 36th season at the helm. As the only coach in program history, McFadden has racked up 350 career wins and been named WCC Coach of the Year a record eight times while collecting seven WCC championships.
