5. COLLEGE MEN: UCLA stuns No. 1 Duke in quarterfinals

UCLA overcame a 2-0 first-half deficit to defeat top-ranked Duke, 3-2, Sunday in NCAA men's quarterfinal action at Duke's Koskinen Stadium.

West Coast rival UC Santa Barbara and ACC powers Virginia and Wake Forest will join UCLA at the Men's College Cup Dec. 1-3 in St. Louis after a weekend that saw the four quarterfinal games produce 19 goals. UCSB beat upstart Northwestern, 3-2, Saturday before 8,784 fans in Santa Barbara. On Friday, Virginia beat Notre Dame, 3-2, thanks to two goals by Adam Cristman, and Wake Forest rallied to beat Santa Clara, 3-1.
