Top 10 Preview: No. 1 Cal prepares for difficult Los Angeles road trip

With its home season now complete, top-ranked California takes a 6-0 dual-meet record to Los Angeles this weekend where it will face No. 5 Southern California on Friday and No. 16 UCLA on Saturday. The competition against the Bruins will be televised on a delayed basis by the Pac-12 Networks, airing on Sunday.

Cal is coming off a sweep of Arizona State (229-69) and Arizona (190-109), where the Bears combined to win 25 of 32 events. Missy Franklin won three individual events each day, Cindy Tran took the 100 fly both afternoons and Kaylin Bing swept the 50 free against the Sun Devils and Wildcats.

Last year in Berkeley, USC edged Cal, 155-145, while the Bears topped the Bruins, 165-135. Still, Cal leads each series, 20-14 against the Trojans and 22-10 against UCLA.

No. 8 West Chester will take on Penn in Division II action this weekend. The Golden Rams are coming off of an outing at the West Chester Diving Invitational... No. 3 Kenyon will face Ohio Wesleyan in Division III. In Kenyon's last meet, it slipped on the final day to finish in fourth place in the Winter Classic.
