Stanford men win Pac-12 soccer title without playing

 

Stanford is the king of the Pac-12 yet again. For the second consecutive season and third time in program history, the Cardinal has claimed the conference crown. This time, without even playing.

Stanford, which clinched at least a share of the league title by virtue of a 2-0 victory at Oregon State on Oct. 31, will hold the 2015 trophy outright following Washington's 1-1 draw at San Diego State on Friday night. The Huskies, with 12 points and two games remaining, cannot match Stanford's current total of 20 points.

The No. 4 Cardinal (13-2-2, 6-1-2), which is off this weekend, concludes its regular season at Cagan Stadium on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. in a match against Cal carried on the Pac-12 Networks.

Stanford will also be the league's automatic qualifier for the NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship. The postseason bracket will be revealed on Monday, Nov. 16 at 10 a.m. PT via a selection show on NCAA.com.
