APPALACHIAN STATE (4-0-0).
Big wins: Captured a pair of overtime decisions over Gardner-Webb (1-0) and Winthrop (2-1) last weekend. Big star: Arie Muniz has four goals in four games. Big test: First-year coach Shaun Pendleton will lead the Mountaineers against Wake Forest on Sept. 24.

MONDAY NIGHT.  No. 17 Providence was held to a 0-0 tie by Northeastern Monday night.  The Friars, who are off to their best start since 2005, move to 3-0-2. PC goalkeeper Timothy Murray stopped three shots to earn his fourth shutout of the season and the 12th of his career.
