UC Irvine senior forward Tanya Taylor (Buena Park, Calif.)  – who played a lead road during the past week in a pair of road wins vs. two of the Big West's top teams – has been named the CS360 Primetime Player of the Week for Division I women's soccer, as selected by CollegeSoccer360.com (for the week of Oct. 4-10). Taylor is joined by 13 other players in comprising the week-8 CS360 Primetime Performers of the Week (see list below).

Tanya Taylor a230 Taylor's drop pass led directly to the first goal in a 3-0 win at Cal Poly (picked to finish second in the Big West) and she then scored her ninth goal of the season minutes later, giving UCI a 2-0 cushion only six minutes into the key road test. Two days later, Taylor (pictured at left) beat her defender in the final minute of overtime (110') and slid a tailor-made pass to Alexis Rafael for a 1-0 win at Big Wes favorite (and defending champ) UC Santa Barbara.

Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.
• Must have been playing in a game involving a top-50 team from the CS360 Composite National Rankings (or a conference favorite/leader), or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification.
• Involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, team leadership, etc.
• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.
