1. USC (20-3-2).
Last year: Never before had the Women of Troy advanced past the second round of the NCAA Tournament. In 2007, however, USC followed up a second-place finish to crosstown rival UCLA in Pac-10 play to earn four straight shutout wins that carried the Trojans to Women's College Cup, where they beat UCLA, 2-1, and Florida State, 2-0, to win the national championship.

This year:
U.S. Olympian Amy Rodriguez was part of a 2005 USC freshman class considered one of the best ever in the history of women's soccer. She is one of four senior starters for the Women of Troy along with Stacey Strong, Janesse Currier and Ashley Nick, an All-American as a junior.

In addition, Meagan Holmes, the defensive anchor who sidelined with a knee injury early in the 2007 season, and starting forward Marihelen Tomer, who was sidelined in 2005, return as redshirt juniors.

But USC isn't just its senior class. Also back is Soccer American MVP keeper Kristin Olsen, the backstop to a defense that rounded out its 2007 season with a record 20 wins behind a record 15 shutouts and record-low 13 goals allowed.
