After their 2-2 showing this weekend, Santa Clara moved down from 16th to 19th in the polls. But with two games this weekend against top ten opponents, and good showing by the Broncos could mean a climb back up the rankings.

The Broncos are currently ranked third in the nation in goals per game, allowing a stingy 6.0. They are right behind water polo juggernauts USC and Stanford with 5.6 and 5.8 respectively.
