Thursday’s collegiate slate brings a brief respite from a busy week before teams kick it into gear for another busy weekend.
In NCAA DI action, it's an all-California Pac-12 clash as the California Golden Bears face off against the UCLA Bruins. FC Golden State Force forward Jose Carrera-Garcia and Burlingame Dragons defender Joshua Morton will attempt to lead Cal to their first Pac-12 victory of the year.
Elsewhere, Stanford enter on the heels of a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of Saint Louis. The two-time defending NCAA champions will attempt to rebound as Burlingame Dragons midfielder Corey Baird and forward Tomas Hilliard, and San Francisco City FC forward Foster Langsdorf lead the Cardinal against San Diego State at 10 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, in NCAA DII, Simon Fraser will look to keep their unbeaten record intact when they take on Concordia. Led by Sounders FC U23 midfielder Adam Jones and Calgary Foothills FC midfielder Kyle Jones, Simon Fraser will try and push their record to 6-0-1 against a tricky Concordia team.
Finally, in NAIA play, Thunder Bay Chill defender and reigning PDL Defender of the Year Mitchell Osmond and Reading United AC midfielder Jorge Guinovart lead highly-ranked Rio Grande into battle against Brescia.
In total, 11 PDL players will take the field across six matches on Thursday.
