[MEN'S TOP 25 ROUNDUP]Xavier, Charlotte, Memphis, Santa Clara and Saint Louis knocked off ranked teams on the road Friday night, but none of the wins could be categorized upsets. Xavier and Memphis are unbeaten. Santa Clara with what its coach calls "the potential to be a special team" and Charlotte have only one loss, and Saint Louis' two wins were both against ranked teams. For a look at how they did it ...

USF-SAINT LOUIS. FreshmanKingsley Bryce notched a pair of goals, the first two of his collegiate career, as Saint Louis registered a 2-1 victory over No. 12 South Florida. The win was only the second of the season for the Billikens, but both have been against ranked teams. "This was an important win for us," SLU coach Mike McGinty said.

NORTHERN ILLINOIS-XAVIER.Northern Illinois fell for the first time this season , losing to Xavier, 2-1 in overtime at the Northwestern Lakeside Classic. Gael Riverascored in the third minute for NIU, but Andy Kaplan scored for the Musketeers early in the second half, and they got the game-winner from Gino DePaoli in the 96th minute. “Xavier doesn’t beat themselves,” NIU coach Eric Luzzi said. “They don’t make a lot of mistakes, they don’t leave themselves exposed. They have some good attacking pieces but we had our chances and just didn’t finish them. We aren’t undefeated anymore, they are.

VIRGINIA-CHARLOTTE. Charlotte (5-1-0) scored on a penalty kick by Tyler Gibson with 25 seconds remaining in regulation, then struck again on a goal by Isaac Caughran 42 seconds into overtime to pull out a stunning win over No. 17 Virginia at Kloeckner Stadium. The physical contest featured 49 fouls and 11 cards, including three red cards in the final 20 minutes of regulation.

BRADLEY-MEMPHIS.No. 18 Bradley and Memphis combined for just one shot on goal in the second half of a defensive struggle, but it proved to be the difference as the visiting Tigers (5-0-1) handed Bradley (4-1-2) its first loss of the season with a 1-0 win at the Braves' Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic at Shea Stadium. Memphis forward Mark Sherrod broke loose on a quick counter to score the game-winner in the 81st minute.

SANTA CLARA-CALIFORNIA. Santa Clara improved to 4-1-1 with a convincing 4-2 road win at No. 19 California, its first win in Berkeley in 30 years. The Broncos got goals from David Castellanos, Erik Hurtado, Phillip Muscarellaand newcomer Glenn Vass, who played in the Bayern Munich youth system as a young player in Germany.  "This separates this group from a lot of groups we have had in the past," said Bronco coach Cameron Rast. "This shows that we have the potential to be a special team."
