SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Coming off a trip to the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Santa Clara women's soccer released its 2018 schedule on Monday. The Broncos will play 11 games at Stevens Stadium and once again face a difficult slate of games, with eight matches against 2017 NCAA Tournament teams.
"Our schedule in 2018 is similar to ones we've tried to put together in past years," Santa Clara head coach Jerry Smith said. "We have eight tournament teams on our schedule and some great home games as well as some great local away games. It's a schedule that's going to be very challenging. We need the best teams to show us where we have weaknesses so we have some time to work on them before the NCAA Tournament. We look forward to the challenge."
Fans first chance to see the team will be Aug. 11 when the Broncos host their Red & White Scrimmage at Stevens Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
The regular season kicks-off Aug. 17 at local rival San Jose State. The home-opener will be against Cal Aug. 20 and be followed by two more at home against North Texas and Kansas State
After a trip to Texas A&M Sept. 2, Santa Clara hosts perennial powerhouse North Carolina Sept. 7 and two days later welcomes Notre Dame to the Mission campus. The three-game homestand concludes with TCU Sept. 13.
In one of the most anticipated games of the year, the Broncos travel to defending national champion Stanford for a showdown Sept. 16.
Nonconference concludes with a home match against Cal Poly on Sept. 21 and a road game at UC Santa Barbara on Sept. 23.
West Coast Conference action begins with three on the road at San Francisco (Sept. 30), LMU (Oct. 5), and reigning conference champion Pepperdine (Oct. 7) before a three game stretch at home against Saint Mary's (Oct. 14), Portland (Oct. 19), and Gonzaga (Oct. 21).
A tough road trip to San Diego (Oct. 25) and BYU (Oct. 27) finishes the road slate before Senior Day against Pacific on Nov. 3.
The NCAA Tournament begins Nov. 9 with the College Cup Nov. 30-Dec. 2 in Cary, N.C.
