The important ACC match between UNC and Maryland came down to the wire on Friday. No. 2 UNC saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end with less than two minutes left. Fifth-year senior Kevin Tangney, who had made two comebacks from knee surgery, grabbed the game's lone goal just when overtime seemed imminent.

Akron's dominance continued as they jumped to a 7-0-0 record, crushing MAC competition Bowling Green by a 6-0 score on Saturday. The Zips got their six from five separate players, and will be tested on Wednesday against Ohio State.

There were plenty of upsets around the country, as a number of teams in the NSCAA Top 25 fell to unranked opponents. Virginia lost to Clemson 1-0, Boston College beat Duke 2-0, New Mexico won 2-1 against California, West Virginia shutout South Florida 1-0, and Virginia Tech knocked off North Carolina State, 2-0.

UMBC continued their winning ways behind two goals from nation's leading goalscorer Andrew Bulls to bring their record to 9-0-0 with a 3-0 win over La Salle. The win could likely vault them into the top 25 when the new polls come out tomorrow.

What did you think of this weekend's college soccer action? Make it out to any games? Surprised at the upsets? Should UMBC be ranked in the top 10?
