The ACC is the most stacked conference in college soccer, and this weekend’s college matchups should help put the conference’s Atlantic and Coastal divisions into focus.

SBI No. 2 Louisville is the lone unbeaten team in the ACC, but must travel to face No. 8 Wake Forest on Saturday. The Cardinals suffered a mid-week loss to Indiana, but can take a big step toward controlling the Atlantic division with a win over the Demon Deacons. Notre Dame is currently leading the Coastal Division, but faces a stiff challenge from No. 9 Virginia on Friday.

Out West, Stanford can secure first place in the Pac-12 with a win against arch-rival UCLA on Sunday. The No. 14 Cardinal have won four in a row, but face their toughest test since the beginning of the season when they face the No. 15 Bruins, who have won three in a row.
