Top-ranked Wake Forest had its 18-game winning streak snapped when it had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Duke in ACC play on Saturday. Eight Top 25 teams, including top 10 teams UC Davis and Louisville, lost to unranked teams. For the major developments of the weekend ...

TOP THREE
WAKE FOREST 0 DUKE 0 (OT)
The top-ranked Demon Deacons had their 18-game winning streak snapped when they had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Duke in ACC play on Saturday.

"I'm always disappointed when we don't win," Wake coach Jay Vidovich said. "What we're looking for is where we're at and we came up short in some ways. Our focus and what we did was correct. We could have won the game in the first five minutes if we had of finished one of those chances. I think we're going to get a lot out of this game. We'll find ways to make ourselves better."

Wake's best chance came when Corben Bone hit a shot off the crossbar in the eighth minute.

BRADLEY 0 CREIGHTON 2
Freshman Nick O'Neill scored his first career goal in the first half and senior Andrei Gotsmanov added a late insurance tally to give the No. 2 Bluejays the Missouri Valley win. The Bluejay defense was again dominant, allowing only five shots, none on goal, while posting its ninth shutout in 12 games.

AKRON 2 BUFFALO 0
The Zips picked up their eighth straight victory in a rematch of last year's MAC tournament final. Sophomore Steve Zakuani gave the Zips all the offense they would need with his 15th goal of the season coming in the 27th minute. Matt Tutich then put the game away with his fifth goal of the year in the 73rd minute.

TOP 25 CLASHES
ST. JOHN'S 1 SOUTH FLORIDA 0
The defensive struggle featured only 10 shots. The only goal was scored by Tafadzwa Chiduku after a pass from Nelson Becerra.

UPSETS
UC RIVERSIDE 2 UC DAVIS 1
Xavier Perez scored with less than three minutes remaining to hand the Aggies a 2-1 loss, snapping their 11-game unbeaten streak. UCD had Chris Beville sent off in the 53nd minute but managed to tie the score on Dynan Curtis' penalty kick in the 78th minute.

LOUISVILLE 2 VILLANOVA 3
The Wildcats broke the game open with goals by Joe Taylor (penalty kick) and Michael Seamon (blast from 18 yards) early in the second half. "I am very disappointed in the loss," said Cardinal coach Ken Lolla.  "I am disappointed because I thought we didn't play our best.  We were slow starting and we paid for it.  I have to give them credit, they were able to take advantage of our slow start."

MICHIGAN 0 MICHIGAN STATE 1
Tim Granaderos' late goal on a header off of a free kick proved the difference as Michigan lost its first Big Ten game of the season.

SAINT LOUIS 0 DAYTON 1
Jack Pearson notched his fourth goal of the season 18 minutes into the contest for the Flyers, who now lead the Atlantic-10.

VIRGINIA 0 BOSTON COLLEGE 1
Freshman Edvin Worley headed in a loose ball in the six-yard box for the game's only goal as Virginia suffered its first ACC loss after four wins.

WASHINGTON 0 UCLA 2
A pair of first-half goals by Jason Leopoldo and Prince Lapnet provided all the scoring UCLA would need as goalkeeper Brian Perk recorded his third shutout of the season. The Bruins played perhaps their best defense of the season, allowing just six shots, only three on goal.

BROWN 1 HARVARD 4
Alex Chi scored twice in the first half and Michael Fucito and Baba Omosegbon scored in the second half to give the Crimson a 4-0 lead before the Bears got a consolation goal from Austin Mandel with just 53 seconds left.

SMU 0 MARSHALL 1
SMU outshot the Thundering Herd, 25-7, and had a 10-1 edge in corner kicks but lost on when Kolby LaCrone collected a loose ball and slipped a shot in to the lower right corner of the net in the second minute.
