[COLLEGE MEN: Weekend]It was another rough week for top-ranked teams as No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 North Carolina could only earn ties, while No. 4 Clemson, No. 5 VCU and No. 6 St. John's all lost. No. 9 Cal State Northridge fell after seven straight wins.

Despite playing with a man advantage for the last 50 minutes, Notre Dame could only manage a 1-1 tie at Boston College.

The Irish fell behind on Isaac Normesinu's goal in the 17th minute -- the first goal they allowed in 289 minutes -- but responded 12 seconds later on a goal from senior forward Harrison Shipp.

Notre Dame played a man up after Boston College defender Nick Butler was issued a second yellow card in the 60th minute.
 
“I felt we really dominated play after their guy got sent off with the red card,” said Irish coach Bobby Clark, “but Boston College has some really fast players who can give you some problems in transition and that kept it exciting."

-- North Carolina went to overtime for the fourth straight game and fifth time in six games but it could not break a scoreless deadlock with Virginia Tech. Hokies keeper Kyle Renfro made two big saves in overtime to hold off the Tar Heels.

-- Patrick Mullins, the reigning Soccer America Player of the Year, scored two penalty kicks to lead Maryland to a 3-1 victory over Clemson, which fell for the first time after six wins. Schillo Tshuma had the third goal for the Terrapins, who are 2-2-2.

-- Coastal Carolina upset VCU, 1-0, on Ricky Garbanzo's goal off a rebound after 56 seconds. It was the Chanticleers' third win over a Top 25 team this season.

Crowd Count ...

-- No. 8 Creighton beat St. John's, 1-0, in its Big East debut before 5,282 fans at Morrison Stadium. Freshman Fabian Herbers ended the Jays’ third consecutive double-overtime contest on a free kick with 115 seconds to play.

-- Freshmen Cyle Larin and Ethan Decker scored to give No. 7 Connecticut a 2-1 win over No. 10 Saint Louis before 4,122 fans in Storrs.

MATADORS FALL. In front of an overflow crowd of 2,304 fans at Matador Soccer Field, Cal State Northridge lost to No. 15 UCLA, 4-2.

JuniorLeo Stolz and senior Victor Chavez each scored two goals to hand the Matadors their first loss of the season after matching a program record with a seven-match win streak to open the year.

-- Lars Ludwig and Conner Bevans scored to give No. 19 Gonzaga a 2-0 win over No. 21 Wisconsin. The loss was the Badgers' first in seven games.

Upsets ...

A goal by senior Addison Eck in the 88th minute gave Drake a 1-0 victory at No. 11 New Mexico before 3,002 fans in Albuquerque.

UNBEATEN AND UNTIED.UMBC and Dayton (both 7-0-0) are the only unbeaten and untied teams in the country.

UMBC improved to 7-0-0 with a 3-1 win over Baltimore rival Loyola (Md.) on goals by Kadeem Dacres, Geaton Caltabiano and Pete Caringi.

The Flyers remained perfect with wins over Ohio State (3-1) and IUPUI (2-0).
