Online soccer source Top Drawer Soccer has selected UCLA as the NCAA title favorite in its pre-season Men's Tournament 48 National Ranking. The rankings are based on the 48-team field for the NCAA Tournament, reflecting the automatic bids given to Division I conference champions. The ranking is intended to be a running projection of who will qualify for the post-season tournament.

Soccer America has selected UCLA as its pre-season No. 5 team, citing the Bruins' large talent pool from the youth national team ranks.

The Bruins are also ranked No. 10 in the NSCAA/adidas pre-season poll and No. 8 in the College Soccer News poll.

UCLA opens the season against Cal State Northridge (ranked No. 23 by Soccer America) on Saturday, Aug. 26 at Frank W. Marshall Field at Drake Stadium. Game time is set for 7 pm.
