[STANFORD-BOSTON COLLEGE PREVIEW] Stanford puts its No. 1 ranking and perfect season on the line Friday night when it hosts Boston College at 7 p.m. (Webcast)

Led by Kelley O'Hara(23 goals 13 assists) and Christen Press(19 goals and 13 assists), the Cardinal has the No. 2 offense in the country (3.25 goals a game), but it will face one of the nation's best young goalies in BC sophomore Jillian Mastroianni.

All 2,200 tickets were sold within five hours of going on sale Monday morning, making the game the sixth sellout of the season for the Cardinal.

Both the No. 1 Cardinal and Eagles have enjoyed banner seasons. Stanford has won all 23 games. BC's 18 wins are a school record. This is the first time under Coach Alison Kulik that they've advanced to the Elite Eight.

Players to Watch ...
Teresa Noyola (Stanford). It says some about Stanford's depth that Noyola isn't starting. She's one of the nation's top playmakers but she hasn't started in a month. Nonetheless, she is a key player for Cardinal. In the third round, she came off the bench against Santa Clara and scored the only goal of the match on a 25-yard free kick in the first half.

Jillian Mastroianni (Boston College). The sophomore goalie has three shutouts in three NCAA Tournament games and allowed only one goal in her last five games. She was named All-ACC first team in 2009 after making the second team as a freshman.

The road so far ...
Stanford 2 (Press 55, 67) Northern Arizona 0
Stanford 2 (Press 1, Quon 89) BYU 0.
Stanford 1 (Noyola 38) Santa Clara 0.

Boston College 1 (Caldwell 46) Harvard 0.
Boston College 2 (Crutchfield 32, G.DiMartino 68) Connecticut 0.
Boston College 1 (Knowlton 64) Wisconsin 0.
