Things are looking pretty grim for Wake Forest as the Demon Deacons suffered yet another loss to unranked opposition, this time a 1-0 defeat to College of Charleston. A 61st minute goal by Francis Twohig was enough for Charleston and No. 19 Wake Forest was again held to a shutout, their third of the season. The loss moves the 2007 national champions to 2-3-1 on the year and puts them in serious danger of falling out of the top 25.
Elsewhere, No. 2 Tulsa survived an overtime challenge from Missouri State to win 2-1. An Edin Sabic free kick gave Missouri State a halftime lead but Adrian Klammer netted the equalizer in the 76th minute. Austin Neil sealed the victory in the 107th minute with a close-range rebound. The Golden Hurricanes now focus on their upcoming clash with top-ranked Akron in a rare matchup of the top two teams in the country.
