CS360 Thursday Scoreboard (women; 10/6/11)

There's five games on tap Thursday involving CS360 top-50 teams, most notably #3 Duke at #6 Boston College and a key WCC showdown between perennial league champion Portland (#49) at conference newcomer BYU (#44). As usual, CS360 will be tracking Thursday's games, with info. posted on this blog page, the CS360updates Twitter feed and the CollegeSoccer360.com sidebar scoreboard.

There already have been 25 games this week featuring CS360 top-40 men's teams (plus one top-50 women's game), see lists below, and it's been rough going for several of the higher-ranked teams. In those 25 men's games, six top-40 teams were upset (#3 Akron, #6 Indiana, #19 Santa Clara, #22 Providence, #29 William & Mary and #35 Kentucky) while two others suffered "upset ties" (#10 St. John's and #16 Notre Dame). Roughly one-third of those 25 games (8) have extended to overtime, including narrow wins for #2 Maryland, #4 North Carolina, #5 Creighton, #8 UC Irvine and #32 Northern Illinois.
