8 Top 25 Affairs On Tap to Wrap Regular Season Play

While the top seeds have already been decided for the CWPA, GCC and MAAC Tournaments, there are still 23 matches on tap for Week 13, including eight involving a pair of Top 25 teams.

17 teams ranked in the CWPA Top 25 will be in the pool.

The hottest action comes in the MPSF as #1 Stanford, #2 USC, #3 UCLA and #4 Cal are set for matches alongside #10 Arizona State and #20 San Jose State. Only the league’s top seed (Stanford) and #7 seed (Indiana) have been determined as yet. The top ranked Cardinal are set for a non-conference match against #9 UC Davis on Friday before facing SJSU to wrap league play.

#7 UC Irvine still has a shot at a share of the Big West regular season title if they can top #13 Long Beach State on Thursday.

#8 Pacific also is in action, although the Tigers already sewed up the GCC title.

#5 Hawaii and #6 Michigan are on bye weeks.

Below is a conference by conference breakdown of upcoming matches and what is at stake on Week 13.

Big West

In the Big West, Hawaii clinched a share of the league title last week, but two conference matches remain on the slate as #13 Long Beach plays host to #7 UC Irvine on Thursday and faces #11 UC Santa Barbara on the road on Saturday. The top two seeds receive a bye in the league tournament on April 26-28. With a win UC Irvine would tie Hawaii for the conference crown and take the #1 seed in the tournament due to a head to head victory.
