"Major upsets and emerging powerhouses have made this college football season exciting to watch as the race for the Capital One Cup has gotten off to a thrilling start," said Capital One Cup Advisory Board member and college football analyst, Rece Davis. "Florida State, North Dakota State and Notre Dame have risen to the top and I'm looking forward to seeing what programs join the rankings and challenge them for the Cup."

"Strong performances were showcased by student-athletes on the soccer field this season and UCLA's hard-charging win over Florida State in overtime is an example of just that," said Capital One Cup Advisory Board member, Brandi Chastain, a former student-athlete at Santa Clara University. "The Bruins outscored three No. 1 seeds en route to the Women's College Cup and took home their first-ever soccer championship as a result.  With the heart and determination already shown by women's athletics programs this season, I'm excited to follow the remaining NCAA championships and the race for the Capital One Cup."

"The start to the 2013-14 college sports season has not only been competitive but athletics programs that we have not traditionally seen in the top 10 of the fall standings have asserted themselves as challengers for the Cup," said Marc Mentry, Senior Vice President at Capital One.  "However, if last year's season is any indication of how exciting the race for the Capital One Cup is, then the winter and spring athletics seasons will surely produce some great outcomes and additional contenders for the ultimate bragging rights in college sports."

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, new winners emerged when UCLA won on the men's side and North Carolina claimed the women's Cup after the Stanford women and Florida men earned the Capital One Cup the previous two years. This is the fourth year of the Capital One Cup.
