"There have been some inspiring performances from championship teams and student-athletes this fall," said Capital One Cup Advisory Board member, Brandi Chastain, a former student-athlete at Santa Clara University. "The UNC women's soccer team persevered through a challenging bracket to take home their 21st championship.  And the women's volleyball tournament was filled with exciting upsets from teams like Oregon and Michigan before seeing Texas come away with the final victory. I'm looking forward to seeing which programs will challenge these current Capital One Cup standings leaders during the winter and spring sports seasons and gain the inside track at winning the trophy and $400,000 in combined total scholarships for student-athletes."

"The college football season has been one of the most exciting in recent memory, and the race for the Capital One Cup has been no different," said Capital One Cup Advisory Board member and former Heisman Trophy winner, Doug Flutie. "There's been a lot of movement at the top of the Capital One Cup standings this fall and Alabama and North Dakota State have claimed their early first place standing following strong performances on the football field.  This is my third year with the program and I love how the enthusiasm from schools and fans continues to build as their respective teams earn points and move up in the standings."

"In the fall we saw athletics programs like Penn State, North Carolina, Alabama, North Dakota State and Indiana start to assert themselves," said Marc Mentry, Senior Vice President, Capital One Brand Marketing. "But anything can happen in the race for the Capital One Cup, as last year's men's winner, Florida, wasn't even ranked in the top 10 after the fall.  As we move into the winter and spring seasons, we look forward to following the great performances of college athletics and the contenders for the Capital One Cup."

Schools earn points based on their teams' top 10 finishes in NCAA Division I championships and in final official coaches' polls across 20 women's and 19 men's sports as they compete to win the Capital One Cup trophy and a combined $400,000 in scholarships for student-athletes. The Capital One Cup winners will be determined at the end of the spring season and honored at the ESPY Awards in July.  Last year the University of Florida won on the men's side and Stanford University claimed the women's Cup – each for the second consecutive year. This is the third year of the Capital One Cup.
