Virginia Commonwealth came into the season with high expectations, but a season-opening 4-0 loss to UAB toppled the Rams out of the SBI Top 25 and raised questions of just how serious a contender they would be this season.

VCU responded this past week with a strong pair of results to re-establish themselves as a force. A 1-1 draw vs. SBI. No. 13 New Mexico, and a 3-2 win vs. No. 8 Maryland gave the Rams one of the more impressive weeks in the country.

It was a rough weekend for several top teams, with Akron, Georgetown, UCSB and Louisville among the teams to suffer their first losses of the season. SBI No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 7 North Carolina played to a 1-1 draw on Sunday to keep their unbeaten records intact.

Defending champion Indiana continued to struggle early in the 2013 campaign, posting a pair of defeats to drop to 1-3 on the season. UAB handed the Hoosiers the first of the losses, while West Virginia won a nine-goal shootout vs. Indiana.
