Upsets galore on opening night of NCAA men's soccer

By

The 2010 men's college soccer season kicked off on Wednesday night with several top teams in action, and if last night's results are any indication, this season will be an unpredictable one.

Six teams ranked in Soccer America's Top 25 were in action on Wednesday, and four of them lost. Highly-regarded UCSB fell in overtime to Cal State-Bakersfield, while Stanford lost to Vermont, also in overtime. South Florida was another upset victim, losing to Florida Gulf Coast for its first home defeat in 30 matches.

Not all the top teams lost, as Connecticut posted a 2-0 victory against St. Francis and Boston College held off Hartford, 3-1.

With the new season ready to kick into full swing this weekend, SBI will be running its NCAA men's season preview today with a series of articles featuring the top teams and players in the nation. It's officially men's college soccer day on SBI so stay tuned for more coverage.
