10/24: College Men’s Soccer: Cal Poly at UCSB After his Cal Poly Mustangs defeated UCSB 3-2 in sudden-death overtime last Saturday, former national team coach Steve Sampson declared, “This has to be the best rivalry in college soccer.” A capacity crowd of 11,075 attended the match in San Luis Obispo, and this Saturday, the Gauchos and their fans get a chance to respond in kind. Last year’s match at Harder Stadium drew a turnout of 14,345, the second largest on-campus attendance in NCAA regular-season soccer history. UCSB is in need of a boost after two losses on the road last week reduced its lead in the Big West North standings to one point over the Mustangs. The teams’ strengths are represented by the Big West’s top scorer (Gaucho striker Nick DePuy) and leading goalkeeper (Cal Poly’s Wade Hamilton). 7pm. Harder Stadium. $10-$12.
