MOST COMMENTED

[WAC: Men]CSU Bakersfield was selected as the favorite to win the WAC title in 2013 -- the first year since 1999 the conference has sponsored men's soccer.

The conference is a mix of WAC schools and former MPSF schools. The MPSF served programs whose conferences did not sponsor men's soccer or other sports.

CSU Bakersfield lost Gyasi Zardes, who joined MLS's LA Galaxy, but junior Lucas Dall’Orso, who tied for the team lead in assists (9) with Zardes, is back.

Air Force won the MPSF Tournament by beating top seed New Mexico to make its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1997. Doug Hill will have his work ahead of him as he must replace eight starters. The three starters who return are Brian Klazura, Scott McGillivray and Caleb Downey.

UNLV, which will be playing its 40th year as a varsity men’s soccer program, returns seven starters from a year ago, including four of the top five starters, as well as senior goalkeeper Joe Vitale.

WAC Preseason Poll:
1. CSU Bakersfield (MPSF)
2. Air Force (MPSF)
3. UNLV (MPSF)
4. San Jose State (MPSF)
5. UMKC (Summit)
6. Seattle (MPSF)
7. Grand Canyon (Division II)
8. Houston Baptist (MPSF)

    Any chance the conference can get San Diego State "back" from the Pac-12?
