College Mid-week Roundup: Butler no longer perfect, SMU tops Tulsa and more

NCAA tab


Well, it's over. The last perfect record in college soccer is no more as No. 7 Butler was held to a 0-0 draw by IUPUI.

Butler held a commanding 29-6 shot advantage but couldn't find the breakthrough. Austin Oldham actually found the back of the net for the Bulldogs, but it was directly off a throw-in and disallowed. 

It was the first time Butler failed to win since Nov. 21 when the Bulldogs were eliminated by Indiana in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

No. 17 Tulsa's struggles continued with a 3-2 loss to No. 6 Southern Methodist. Goals from Jake Dobkins and Corey Albertson gave Tulsa a 2-1 halftime lead. But Arthur Ivo scored in the 61st minute and Robbie Derschang added the game-winner seven minutes later.

No. 2 Louisville survived a double-overtime challenge by DePaul but a 105th minute goal by Nick DeLeon gave the Cardinals a 2-1 victory

Louisville is now 6-0-0 in the Big East and remains undefeated overall.

  1. He may have trained with teams in Europe but I don,t think he could have had trials and still ne NCAA eligible. If I am wrong I am sure I will be corrected.

  2. I was at the IUPUI v. Butler game. Butler completely dominated. IUPUI never came close to scoring. The game literally could have had a 12-0 scoreline. Only in soccer is it possible for a team to control the game from start to finish and not win.

    Undefeated is still pretty good. Go Butler!!!

  3. If MLS wants Ryan Finley they should act on it. He went on trials in Europe this summer. I know he was at Randers but I don’t know about anywhere else.

  4. I was at the Duke High Point game on Tuesday night and somebody needs to pay attention to Ryan Finley (duke) and Michael Chesler (high point) they both played very well and could be very good prospects for this years draft.

  5. IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) used to be in the same conference as my tiny college (Kentucky Wesleyan). We used to call them “oooh-eee-pooh-ee,” but at least they had IUPUI Fort Wayne to make fun of (“ooh-eee-pooh-ee-foo-wee”).

    If I recall IUPUFW were the Mastadons, but I don’t remember IUPUI’s mascot that well. They were both horrible basketball teams, but then everyone was compared to Kentucky Wesleyan (8 National Championships) and Southern Indiana (1 National Championship and coached by Bruce Pearl).

    A nice, unexpected stroll down memory lane today. Thanks for covering the college soccer world.
