Los Angeles, Calif. - The UCLA women's soccer team earned its first No. 1 ranking in program history recently, as both Soccer America and Soccer Buzz Magazine have the Bruins as the top team in the country in their preseason rankings. In addition, UCLA was picked as the favorite to win the 2006 Pac-10 title in a preseason coaches' poll released by the conference on Tuesday.

UCLA, which has made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Final, posted a school record 22 victories in 2005, ending the season with a 22-2-2 overall record. The Bruins, who have won the last three Pac-10 titles and have appeared in the NCAA College Cup the last three seasons, graduated just two seniors from last year's team.

UCLA has been tabbed the favorite in seven of the eight years since the Pac-10 began releasing a preseason coaches' poll back in 1999. The Bruins actually claimed the title in the year they were not picked to win it (2003).

The NSCAA/adidas poll was also released on Tuesday, with the Bruins checking in at No. 2 behind last year's NCAA Champion Portland.
