The UT Austin Villa team, from the University of Texas at Austin, won the 2015 RoboCup 3D Simulation League, winning all 19 games that the team played. During the course of the competition the team scored 87 goals and conceded only 1. Additionally the team won the RoboCup 3D Simulation League technical challenge by winning each of a series of three league challenges: drop-in player, kick accuracy, and free challenge. This paper describes the changes and improvements made to the team between 2014 and 2015 that allowed it to win both the main competition and each of the league technical challenges.
