[TOP 25 SPOTLIGHT] Boston University moved into the Soccer America Women's Top 25 this week at No. 20 following a successful road trip to Seattle, where the Terriers shut out both Washington (1-0) and Portland (2-0). But perhaps BU's best performance of the season came in its opener with it tied ACC powerhouse Boston College (1-1) in a game it could have won.

BU has shut out its last three opponents and given up only three goals this season. The other two came against Illinois State in a game in which Coach Nancy Feldman substituted half the team because the schedule had been disrupted by Hurricane Irene.

BU returned three of the four starting defenders from last year's team that kept opponents scoreless for 1,260 minutes and 13 straight games – the second longest shutout streak in NCAA history.

Senior Jessica Luscinski, the 2010 America East Striker of the Year, and freshman Taylor Krebs lead BU with three goals apiece.

The Terriers' six-game unbeaten streak ties the 1996 squad for the best season-opening stretch in program history.

"We respect all our opponents because on any given day you can be beat," Feldman said after the Portland win. "But we feel confident that we can play with any team in the country, and we proved that this weekend. It's not only a good win for BU, but it's also a good win for our conference and for the Northeast."

In the 3-0 win over Loyola (Md.), Feldman become just the 12th NCAA head coach with at least 10 years at the Division I level to reach the 300-win milestone.
