Texas A&M's back-to-back losses to Kansas (1-0 away) and Missouri (3-0 at home) last weekend threw the Big 12 regular-season race wide open. With two weeks left in the regular season, Colorado leads the Big 12 and could wrap up a share of the title with a win over second-place Texas A&M in its final regular-season game on Sunday in Boulder. If the Buffs falter, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Nebraska or Texas could pass them.

KASEY MOORE. The two-time Soccer America MVP is one of the nation's top defenders. She is also one of the most feared players in the air. She has racked up 12 points off four goals and four assists. Moore is second on the Longhorns in scoring and her four goals place her 11th in UT's career record books with 17.

YOLANDA ODENYO. The Swede's dream of playing for women's giant North Carolina was denied because of issues surrounding her participation in the Damallsvenskan, the top-flight Swedish league. The Tar Heels' loss was Oklahoma State's gain. Granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA this past summer, Odenyo leads the Big 12 with 12 goals.

NIKKI MARSHALL. Marshall is a key member of the U.S. under-20 women's national team's defense, but she plays up front for Colorado. Her eight goals give her 34 in her career -- a new Colorado record. The most important goal came late in the Buffs' 1-0 win over defending champion Texas.

KELLY MENACHOF. Cal's top freshman in 2006, returned home after two years in Berkeley and transferred to Colorado. She has scored three goals for the Buffs.

EMILY CRESSY. Redshirt freshman is tied for the Kansas lead with seven goals. She is deaf so her teammates greet her when she scores with hands raised and rotated, palms-open, to give her the sign-language version of clapping and cheering. Interpreters work with Cressy on the field and in the classroom.

KELLY DYER. U.S. U-20 keeper Kristin Arnold went down in an injury in Texas A&M's game with North Carolina in late August, and Dyer stepped in and has been outstanding ever since with a 0.71 goals-against average.
