No. 1 Akron wins 15th game in a row

MEN'S NEWS ... Sophomore Teal Bunbury scored his seventh goal in his last seven games to give No. 1 Akron a 1-0 win at Buffalo on a cold and rainy Friday night. Bunbury's team-leading 12th goal of the season was enough for the Zips to extend their winning streak to 15 straight games.

"We've been on the road the last six of seven games and I thought we looked a little flat at times tonight," said Akron coach Caleb Porter. "But we still generated quality chances and possessed the ball for the entire game." Indeed, Buffalo did not muster a single shot on goal.

* BRUIN TEAMWORK. No. 2 UCLA extended its unbeaten streak to 10 games with a 1-0 win at No. 25 California on senior Kyle Nakazawa's ninth of the season. Goalie Brian Perk needed to make only two saves to shut out the slumping Golden Bears.

"Our performance was very solid from beginning to end," said UCLA head coach Jorge Salcedo. "We had the majority of the possession throughout the game. The goal was a result of 14 passes and winning the ball back in their penalty box. The finish was from a intelligent pass from Michael Stephens, and Kyle Nakazawa took his goal really well."

-- In other Pac-10 action, visiting San Diego State knocked off No. 21 Stanford, 2-1, on Khadem Diouf's golden goal.
