Keep Your Eyes on This

• In one of the biggest regular-season contests of 2011 and a rematch of the 2010 NCAA title game, No. 2-ranked Cal hosts No. 4 USC. Looking to avenge last year's loss, Cal features the 2010 National Player of the Year Ivan Rackov, who leads the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in scoring with 49 goals in 15 matches (3.27 gpg).


• Saturday afternoon marks the first time this water polo season that top-ranked Stanford and No. 3 UCLA go head-to-head. The MPSF rivals meet up for a key battle, as the Cardinal puts its six-game winning streak on the line.
