MEN'S NEWS ... Sophomore Stephen Knox's first goal of the season gave Boston University a 1-0 win over No. 3 St. John's on Sunday night at Nickerson Field.

No. 1 Akron and No. 4 Wake Forest rolled on the road on Sunday. Golden goals gave New Mexico a 2-1 win at No. 15 Notre Dame and No. 17 Northwestern a 3-2 victory over Tulsa.

American was the only other Top 25 team to fall to an unranked team, dropping a 3-0 decision to Monmouth.

With UC Santa Barbara trailing Loyola Marymount, 2-0, in the second half, it looks like only three Top 25 teams will complete Week 2 with unbeaten and untied records: No. 1 Akron, No. 12 South Florida and No. 20 Duke (4-0-0).

(Read Monday morning's Soccer America Daily for the new Soccer America Top 25.)
