While top-ranked Wake Forest put on another offensive display with a 4-1 win at N.C. State, six Top 25 teams lost over the weekend. The Cal-UCLA was decided in overtime when the Bruins Michael Stephens converted a penalty kick. The biggest surprise was LaSalle, which won for only the second time this season when it rallied from two goals down to defeat Charlotte, 3-2.

TOP THREE
N.C. STATE 1 WAKE FOREST 4
Marcus Tracy notched the fourth multi-goal game of his career and Austin da Luz added two assists to lead Wake Forest, which improved to 4-0-0 in ACC play for the first time in school history.  The win also moved Coach Jay Vidovich to within one victory of the 200 mark in his coaching career.
CREIGHTON 3 EVANSVILLE 2
Andrei Gotsmanov scored a pair of second-half goals, including the game-winner with 51 seconds left, to lead the Bluejays before a crowd of crowd of 3,192 -- Creighton's largest crowd ever for a Missouri Valley match. Gotsmanov's winning goal followed a miscue by Evansville's Reggie Edu, Maurice Edu's younger brother. Tyler Crawford scored twice for Evansville, stopping Creighton's record shutout streak at 722 minutes.
BOWLING GREEN 0 AKRON 2.
Akron scored in the 18th minute on a header by Anthony Ampaipitakwong. Matt Tutich put the game out of reach with another goal in the 86th minute. Goalie Evan Bushrecorded the 43rd shutout of his career to become the MAC's all-time leader.

TOP 25 CLASHES
SOUTH FLORIDA 1 LOUISVILLE 0.
Junior midfielder Zak Boggstallied a golden goal from 16 yards to the delight of 2,192 fans at USF Soccer Stadium. The win left USF tied with St. John's at 5-1-1 in the Big East Red Division.
GEORGETOWN 0 CONNECTICUT 0.
The Huskies have only one win in their last five games. They have been shut out five times and scored only seven goals in their last 11 games.
UC SANTA BARBARA 0 UC DAVIS 2
The Gauchos suffered their first Big West loss in almost a year when they fell to UCD on a pair of goals -- the second on a spectacular bicycle kick -- by conference leading goal scorer Quincy Amarikwa.
DUKE 0 NORTH CAROLINA 2.
With fellow forward Eddie Ababio out after receiving a red card against Virginia, Brian Shriver stepped up with goals in the 18th and 74th minutes to secure Carolina's third straight win over the Blue Devils.

UPSETS
BUTLER 1 UIC 0.
Kyle Paterosscored from 18 yards out off a feed from Frank Patano to end a school-record 12-game unbeaten streak to start the season by the Flames. UIC coach John Trask's take: "A fair result. If you don't prepare to win, you don't win. A very disappointing performance."
