The UC Davis Aggies (3-3-0) are coming off wins over Saint Mary's (1-0) and San Francisco (1-0) this past weekend. Matt Sheldon leads UC Davis with a pair of goals on the year, while Ryan Gross is the only other Aggie to score thus far. Omar Zeenni has seen every minute in goal and boasts a 0.83 goals against average and 16 saves to go along with three shutouts. As a team, the Aggies are being outscored 5-3 by their opponents, but are outshooting opponents 100-56.

UC Davis won the only other previous meetings between these teams, 2-1 in San Diego on Sept. 18, 2008 when the Aggies were ranked No. 23 at the time.

The Sacramento State Hornets (1-1-3) tied San Francisco (1-1) and Saint Mary's (0-0) this past weekend, giving them three consecutive ties. Gabe Silveira, Isaac Ikyurav, and Chimdum Mez have Sac State's three goals so far this season. Cesar Castillo has a 0.86 goals against average in goal and has registered 27 saves and two shutouts on the year.

The all-time series between USD and Sac State is tied at 2-2-0. Sac State won last season's contest 2-1 in overtime in Sacramento.

USD battled UC Riverside to a 0-0 draw this past Friday night at home, before falling to No. 14 UCLA 3-2 in overtime in a heartbreaker on the road. After a very tightly-contested regulation, two red cards in the beginning of the second overtime period forced the Toreros to play short two players against UC Riverside, but USD was able to hold off the Highlanders and earn the scoreless tie. At UCLA, the Toreros got goals from Connor Brandt (26') and Parker Price (67') that forced overtime. However, UCLA took advantage of a USD own-goal in the 96th minute to walk away with the win.

• So far, six different Toreros have scored one goal this season.
• USD was without five starters in their 3-2 loss at UCLA this past weekend, which allowed Rom Appel and Dannny McDermott to earn their first-career starts, while Shane Thompson, Alex Stimpfl, Lundon Attisha, and Niccolo Piacentini each saw their first action of the fall.
• So. Darragh Vieyra (London, England) and So. Keegan Smith (Temecula, Calif.) each scored their first USD goals recently. Vieyra had the lone USD goal in a 2-1 loss at Cal State Northridge, while Smith scored the first USD goal in their 3-2 victory over Cal State Fullerton.
• USD finished the 2012 season with a 14-9-0 (9-3-0 WCC) record and won their first WCC title since 2009 before advancing to the Elilte 8 of the NCAA Tournament, their best NCAA finish since playing in the national title game in 1992. The Toreros finished the 2012 season ranked No. 12 in the final NSCAA Top-25.
• USD returns four All-WCC performers from last season: Sr. M Elijah Galbraith-Knapp (2nd Team), Sr. D Julian Ringhof (2nd Team), Jr. GK Drew Ilijevski (honorable mention), and Torrey DeArmas (All-Freshman).
• The Toreros led the WCC in goals (22) last season during conference play, ranked 2nd in points (59) and tied for 3rd in assists (15).
