This weekend, UCLA will host eleven Pac-12 teams in the 2013 Pac-12 Shootout. Ten games will be played over the weekend, with five each on Saturday (Feb. 16th) and Sunday (Feb. 17th), and some of the best squads in the MCLA will be on display.

ASU returns to UCLA for this year's Shootout looking to start the season with a win.

Saturday’s top game is undoubtedly between #15 California and #2 Arizona State. Berkeley (1-1), who took #8 UCSB to overtime last week before falling to the Gauchos, takes on the Sun Devils in ASU’s first game of the regular season. The game will be broadcast live by The Lacrosse Network, so be sure to tune in if you can’t make it to LA this weekend.

Eleventh-ranked Stanford (1-0) looks to stay hot after beating UCSB in their season opener as they face Oregon State (0-1) on Saturday.

UCLA (1-0), after beating San Diego last weekend to open the season, will face a big test against #23 Arizona in U of A’s first contest of the year.

Saturday’s slate is rounded off with two rematches from last year’s Shootout, a Washington State-USC match-up and a Utah-Washington contest.

Utah and Washington will play a rematch of last year's Pac-12 Shootout match-up.

On Sunday, #7 Oregon comes to Los Angeles a day after taking on #4 Chapman in Orange County. Oregon goes up against Stanford in yet another top-15 contest that looks to be the biggest Sunday game.

Arizona-Cal also should be an excellent match-up, as this is the Cats and Bears’ third consecutive year playing each other at the Pac-12 Shootout. If the previous scores are any indication (Arizona winning 10-9 in 2011 and Cal winning 11-9 in 2012), this top-25 contest will go down to the wire.

The remaining Sunday games will be played between UCLA and Wazzou, Utah and Oregon State, and Washington and USC.

Cal and Arizona will face off for the third year in a row at the Pac-12 Shootout.
