Cal State Northridge (9-2) remained No. 1, followed by Southern California (7-3), UCLA (6-5), BYU (7-4) and Stanford (5-3).

Northridge received 11 first-place votes with Southern Cal (3) and UCLA (2) receiving the remaining No. 1 votes.

The Warriors (6-5) host Alberta, Canada, in exhibition matches Friday and Saturday.
