College Weekend Rewind: Stanford routs UCLA, Wake Forest drops Louisville, and more


Stanford wasn’t expected to follow up its NCAA title-winning season with another strong campaign after heavy losses to graduation, but this weekend provided a clear reminder that the Cardinal are still a national force.

SBI No. 14 Stanford cruised to a 3-0 victory over No. 15 UCLA on Sunday, improving the Cardinal to 5-0 in Pac-12 play.

Sam Werner, Tanner Beason and Adam Osharrafa scored to lead Stanford to a comfortable victory that has the Cardinal leading the way in conference play. Goalkeeper Andrew Epstein recorded three saves to preserve the shutout.

No. 8 Wake Forest earned an impressive 2-1 victory over No. 2 Louisville on Saturday, moving into a tie with the Cardinals in the ACC Atlantic standings in the process. A Jacori Hayes goal and Ian Harkes penalty kick paved the way for the Demon Deacons.

SBI No. 9 Virginia pushed its unbeaten streak to six matches by topping No. 3 Notre Dame, 1-0, on Friday. Cavaliers goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell recorded a career-high seven saves to help Edward Opoku’s early goal stand up in this key ACC clash. The loss snapped Notre Dame’s own five-match unbeaten run.

Maryland secured a share of Big 10 title with a dramatic overtime victory, 3-2, over Wisconsin. Sophomore midfielder Eryk Williamson scored the game-winning goal in the eighth minute of overtime to keep the Terrapins unbeaten on the season.

The Terps remain one of three unbeaten teams in the nation, along with No. 4 Denver and No. 20 UMass-Lowell, which both won matches this weekend.
