The marquee teams UCSB will be playing out of conference this fall are the U-20 Mexico team, Davidson, UCLA, and Duke. All of these matches are at the spruced up Harder Stadium.
Last season UCSB beat U-17 Mexico 2-1 at Harder Stadium in front of about 8,000 fans, mostly Mexico fans. Then in the Sweet 16, they lost to UCLA in Westwood 2-1 with about 3,000 people in attendance.
Duke finished ranked #12 in the country last year while Davidson finished the season 10-7 while beating 2 ranked opponents during the season.
It promises to be a season of tortilla tossing and goal scoring for the Gauchos.
